The public comment period on the Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs’ draft Environmental Justice Policy is open until October 9, 2015. The draft Environment Justice (EJ) Policy is a direct result of the Executive Order for Environmental Justice signed by Governor Deval Patrick at the end of his term in office. The Order requires that all Secretariats of the Commonwealth develop strong environmental justice policies that protect vulnerable communities. Submitted comments will inform EEA’s discussions around finalizing the updated EJ Policy.
