Today, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) will hold a roundtable discussion with local environmental advocates and researchers in Milford to gather input for his bipartisan Super Pollutants Act of 2014, which he announced last week with U.S. Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine).
This is the first major bipartisan piece of climate legislation introduced in the Senate this year, officials said. The proposed legislation will reduce pollutants in the atmosphere by enabling federal agencies to work with businesses and non-profits to adopt pollutant-reducing technologies and policies.
