This page is for considering a Referendum Vote Initiative to stop new large infrastructure projects for fossil fuels, such as the Northeast expansion pipeline proposal in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts during the November, 2018 Election.
The initiative process is established by Amendment Article 48 of the Massachusetts Constitution as a way for citizens to propose laws and constitutional amendments for approval by the electorate.
A vote in Massachusetts can turn the situation around. Citizens have the right to protect their environment. There are current technologies available using renewable fuels that will serve us much better. The steps we take now will create our future.
