A second Rhode Island resolution to support climate education

Senate Resolution 2626 (PDF) would, if approved, express the support of the Rhode Island Senate for increased environmental and climate education in the state's public schools — and the NCSE/Penn State study of climate change education is cited as evidence of the need for the increase.

Virtually identical to House Resolution 7471, SR 2626 is sponsored by Valerie J. Lawson (D-District 14), Dawn Euer (D-District 13), V. Susan Sosnowski (D-District 37), Bridget Valverde (D-District 35), and Erin Lynch Prata (D-District 31).

SR 2626 is the thirteenth measure directly aimed at supporting climate change education to be introduced in a state legislature in 2020: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York (three bills), Rhode Island (two resolutions), and Washington (two bills).
