Today the Minnesota House of Representatives passed transformative legislation that will tackle the climate crisis and create good jobs. House File 7 establishes new clean energy goals for the state and puts Minnesota on a path to produce 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040.
“Minnesota has a proud tradition of being a national clean energy leader, but we’ve fallen behind other states,” said the bill’s author, House Majority Leader Jamie Long. “Enacting the 100% bill will put Minnesota back on the map for clean energy leadership. Minnesotans are calling on us to act and we are answering the call.”
