No Cost Plan...any hope for"Pay as You Drive" Insurance program?

By Jay Lindsay - Dec 29, 2010 By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — The state's energy chief on Wednesday released a plan to sharply cut Massachusetts' greenhouse gas emissions that calls for better efficiency, more hydroelectric power and an experimental insurance program aimed at curbing driving.

The "Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan for 2020" tries to reduce emissions to 25 percent below their 1990 levels within the decade, as required by the state's two-year-old anti-global warming law.

The plan by Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Ian Bowles outlines more than two dozen steps to get there that mix existing policies with expanded or new programs.
