New Hampshire senator celebrates pollutant legislation
CONCORD, N.H. (WCAX) - New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan is celebrating a step in the U.S. Senate to combat climate change.
It’s called the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocols. The goal is to phase down the use of super-pollutants found in many consumer products.
Hassan called it good news for the environment.
She says it helps the U.S. produce the next generation of energy-efficient consumer products, such as everyday items like air conditioner units and refrigerators.
“Our bipartisan vote to ratify the amendment is an important step forward in our efforts to combat climate change and strengthen our economy,” Hassan, D-New Hampshire, said in a statement.
