Nightside with Dan Rea - Rundown for April 2, 2021


Massachusetts and the TCI. The Transportation and Climate Initiative is a regional collaboration of states that seeks to improve transportation, develop a clean energy economy, and reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector. Last week, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker signed a climate bill committing the state to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Other regional states such as Connecticut have yet to fully pass a climate bill. Chris Herb, President of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association, joins Dan to discuss the repercussions of the TCI and these climate bills, which includes a potential gas tax hike.

Around Town. Anthony Sammarco, a preeminent Boston historian and prolific author, joins Dan to discuss the history and charm of some of Boston’s most beloved neighborhoods.
