Legislative Updates

MA Senate Passes Home Heating Oil Insurance Bill

The LSPA is excited to announce that on April 14, 2022, the MA  Senate passed the LSPA’s bill, An Act relative to the remediation of home heating oil releases.   

This is a significant step forward but there is more work to be done before this bill becomes law.   The bill is now with the House Committee on Ways and Means for consideration.  The LSPA’s Legislative Committee will work on moving the bill through the House of Representatives before July 31, 2022.  

Many thanks to Senator Anne Gobi for sponsoring and championing this bill for three legislative sessions, to Senator Michael Rodrigues, and to the many media outlets that helped bring widespread visibility to this issue.
