Massachusetts has not begun the legislative or regulatory process for the development of comprehensive CCS regulations. That said, the private sector and MIT are actively engaged in researching the potential for CCS. It is thought that the private sector and MIT will do the research and development of the CCS technology and once that is viable, Massachusetts will then look to address the legal and regulatory infrastructure for the development of a comprehensive CCS legal regime.
