Daley, McCarter to Host Town Hall on Environmental Issues

Montgomery County State Representatives Mary Jo Daley (D) and Stephen McCarter(D) are hosting a town hall meeting at Ambler Borough Hall on Thursday, April 27th, from 7 pm to 9 pm. The overall theme of the meeting is the environment.

Daley and McCarter are members of the bipartisan, bicameral Climate Caucus, which is a infomral discussion forum for Pennsylvania legislators to address issues related to climate change.

Topics to be discussed at the meeting are:

Impact of climate change

· Environmental protections and regulations nationwide and within Pennsylvania

· Impact of budget and regulatory changes on clean air and water

· What citizens can do to help protect the environment in Pennsylvania

· Storm water management

· Methane

“Our climate is changing. 2016 was the nation’s second-warmest year on record and the 20th straight year the U.S. was warmer than average,” McCarter said. “But the context in which we’re experiencing climate disruption is also changing. The new administration in Washington, D.C., is taking an aggressive approach in rolling back many previously enacted environmental regulations, which means it’s more crucial than ever that legislators and citizens alike actively engage in issues of climate change at a state level.

PennFuturea statewide, nonpartisan environmental advocacy organization, will joint the legislators at the meeting. For more information, contact Rep. Daley’s district office at 610-837-1697, or Rep. McCarter’s Glenside office at 215-572-5210. You can RSVP for the town hall here.
