SENATOR ED MARKEY: MASSACHUSETTS
Senator Ed Markey is an avid supporter of energy, environmental protection, and telecommunications issues, particularly when they impact the residents of Massachusetts. He is dedicated to improving the lives of people in his state and the nation at large.
Below are his comments in support of LIHEAP and its impact on local Massachusetts residents. Thank you to Senator Markey for his commitment and advocacy on behalf of LIHEAP and the households it serves.
"When temperatures drop and energy bills pile up, LIHEAP helps families in Massachusetts and throughout the country with a needed lifeline. No household should suffer chills in order to pay bills in the winter, and LIHEAP funding helps families stay warm and make ends meet during tough economic times."
