Representative Bill Keating is running for an eighth term to represent Massachusetts’s 9th Congressional District. Keating previously served in the state House and Senate and as District Attorney for Norfolk County. In Massachusetts, he wrote and passed legislation that still protects the Commonwealth’s water from chemical pollution. As a Representative, Keating has worked to remove tax subsidies for Big Oil companies, preserve the scenic Cape Cod coastline, and support investments in clean energy, including supporting the Cape Wind project. He is a member of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition and the House Oceans Caucus and has secured millions of dollars in funding to protect Cape Cod and southeast Massachusetts’ wetlands, ports, and marine mammals. Keating is also a staunch supporter of the federal Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, which help finance much-needed improvements to wastewater treatment systems, combat stormwater runoff, and improving drinking water. Keating is committed to protecting all wild animals, especially those that are endangered or at risk of being listed as endangered; he has consistently opposed legislative measures that would erode protections for endangered species. He is an original cosponsor of the Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement (ORCA) Act, which would responsibly phase out the captivity of killer whales. In Congress, Keating will continue to be a champion for Cap Cod and the Commonwealth’s coastline. Representative Keating has a 96% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
