Portuguese-American pushes through Climate Change Bill

in News · 23-11-2017 14:23:00 · 0 Comments

Portuguese-American congressman, Dylan Fernandes, has become the first freshman to pass a major piece of legislation in the state of Massachusetts.

The law in question drawn up by Fernandes, sees the American state join the Paris Climate Agreement as an independent participant. The bill was approved by 146 in favour and ten against, with the Senate now set to pass the legislation at the beginning of 2018. The United States is the only country in the world to have not signed the Paris Agreement after Syria did so earlier this month.
