New Legislation for residential fuel oil releases

According to this Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article, a new Massachusetts statute requires all homeowners' insurers in Massachusetts to make coverage available to pay for fuel oil cleanups. The article was written by Susan Crane, an environmental lawyer in Sudbury who represents insured homeowners. Attorney Crane is a member of 21E Homeowner Funding Work Group, the group that put together the legislation.

Congratulations to Attorney Crane, the 21E Homeowner Funding Work Group, and to the Massachusetts legislature for passing a sensible bill.
