2023 Legislative Priorities

In 2022, the General Assembly set a new standard for environmental action in Rhode Island. The 2023 session begins Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Audubon's emerging 2023 legislative priorities and advocacy efforts include:

  • Solutions that protect forests and the health of pollinators and other wildlife.
  • Climate action to reduce carbon emissions in the heating and transportation sector is a priority and critical to meeting the Act on Climate mandates.
  • Investments in climate adaptation and nature-based solutions to protect wildlife and communities against the impacts of climate change.
  • Curbing plastic pollution and banning pyrolysis – like the burning of plastics through a high-heat process – which under-mines Rhode Island climate goals and environmental justice efforts.

We look forward to engaging with you through these efforts in 2023 – your voice is needed!
