Resilient Rhode Island Act (2014)

The 2014 Resilient Rhode Island Act established the Executive Climate Change Coordinating Council (EC4). It also set specific greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets; established an advisory board and a science and technical advisory board to assist the Council; and incorporated consideration of climate change impacts into the powers and duties of all state agencies. The EC4 is charged with developing and tracking the implementation of a plan to achieve greenhouse gas emissions reductions below 1990 levels of: 10 percent by 2020; 45 percent by 2035; and 80 percent by 2050.
