On Wednesday the New Boston Post revealed the Baker Administration’s hatred of cheap clean energy in Massachusetts.
From the New Boston Post:
On Tuesday, Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton suggested that passing the bill might help environmentalists convince the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that the proposed natural gas pipeline is not needed to meet Massachusetts’ energy needs.
“The more that we can move toward showing that diversified portfolio and showing that we are proactively addressing this issue, the more of an impact it could ultimately make on the final FERC decision,” he said.
Massachusetts already gives tax incentives to manufacturers, but wouldn’t the best tax incentive to open or keep your business in Massachusetts be cheap energy?
Is the Baker administration already counting the votes of the radical environmentalists towards his re-election and putting his re-election ahead of good manufacturing jobs in the Commonwealth?
