I’ll start with the good news: Both the Minnesota House and Senate passed our Clean Energy and Jobs legislation last week. The legislation includes a first-ever solar standard and a strengthened renewable energy standard for investor-owned utilities, as well as important efficiency and local power production policies.
Hundreds rallied at the Minnesota state capitol on Earth Day to answer Governor Dayton’s call to build a sustainable energy future for our state in support of clean energy and good jobs!
Will Steger Foundation's Youth Environmental Activists Minnesota program (YEA! MN), along with Minnesota Youth Environmental Network (MNYEN), and the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group (MPIRG) planned a Clean Energy Lobby Day for youth to learn about and advocate for climate solutions and clean energy on a local level.
The Will Steger Foundation has joined a group of labor, energy, business, faith, environment, and youth leaders in a campaign to advance groundbreaking state legislation that creates jobs for Minnesotans, generates clean, renewable energy, and protects our health and the air we breathe.
