Senator Anwar Releases Statement Supporting Senate Approval of ‘Green Economy’ Legislation

HARTFORD, CT – Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) issued the following statement after the Senate passed legislation supporting a number of environmentally friendly and eco-conscious incentives and programs across the state.

“Sustainable farming is critical for our state,” said Sen. Anwar. “A reduction in the cost of energy and the carbon footprint, as well as expansion of anaerobic digestion programs that use waste to generate energy, are a natural fit, especially for dairy farms. We, as a state, need to be partners in supporting this effort; we can reduce our phosphorous burden through it.”
