NFIB Weekly NewsState and Local Highlights Massachusetts Bill Would Allow Communities To Ban Natural Gas Hookups (04/19/2022)
The Boston Globe (4/13, Chesto) reported that a Massachusetts state climate bill would allow communities to ban natural gas hookups, a move critics said “will drive up housing costs, hurt affordability, and deter development by requiring projects to go all-electric.” The Globe said, “Small-business advocates, such as [NFIB], are also raising alarms about the potential costs, particularly for businesses that traditionally rely on natural gas such as restaurants. ‘It does really limit your ability to open a specific type of business in those communities,’ said Chris Carlozzi, NFIB’s state director in Massachusetts.”
