Support for Bill H.4331 Needed!

While the AMC supports the development of solar power, Massachusetts laws and regulations have permitted many thousands of acres of forest and farms to be lost to solar facilities. A decades old law is being interpreted to sharply curtail municipalities authority to zone for solar facilities to protect key resources. Bill H.4331 is a bill which would restore a municipality’s right to reasonably regulate solar power locations and is supported by the AMC. This bill needs your support to gain passage.

Stop Asian Hate

The Appalachian Mountain Club and its volunteer-led chapters including the Western Massachusetts chapter, are outraged by the increase in senseless and racist acts against Asian and Pacific Islander Americans across the country, culminating in the shocking murders of six women of Asian descent in the Atlanta area earlier this month.
