Massachusetts Introduces Bill That Lets Citizens Directly Contribute to Climate-Vulnerable Nations

Illinois National Guard Soldiers load sandbags to move to their nearby work area in East Cape Girardeau, Illinois. The sandbags were being used to construct a levee to control flooding in the small Alexander County, Illinois community. Soldiers from the 1844th Transportation Company, East St. Louis, Illinois; 933rd Military Police Company, Ft. Sheridan, Illinois and 708th Medical Company, North Riverside, Illinois, have been working in East Cape Girardeau since Monday to assist with flood control. They are among 200 Soldiers activated for State Active Duty by Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker June 4 to assist with flood duty from the Metro-East area south along the Mississippi River.

The people of Massachusetts will soon be able to directly contribute finance to support some of the world’s most climate vulnerable countries.

A bill expected to be adopted shortly by the state’s legislature will allow its citizens to voluntarily make a donation to the Least Developed Countries (LDC) fund when filing their tax returns.
