Representative Fue Lee (DFL-Minneapolis) has been selected as the 2020 Minnesota State Lead for the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators (NCEL). This position recognizes the leadership of Rep. Lee within the Caucus and for promoting innovative and effective environmental policy in Minnesota.
Lee has been a member of NCEL for three years. “The National Caucus of Environmental Legislators is important to me because it brings together a diverse group of legislators from across the country and political spectrum to share meaningful solutions to address the environmental issues we are facing in our states,” said Rep. Lee. “It’s an honor to take on this new responsibility with NCEL.”
As an NCEL State Lead, Rep. Lee will serve as the main point of contact in the state, coordinating in-state engagements and recruiting their colleagues to join NCEL.
“State leads are a crucial element of a thriving network like NCEL,” said Jeff Mauk, Executive Director of NCEL. “The Caucus is led by legislators, so the State Leads provide an active conduit of engagement and information sharing with environmental state legislators across the country."
Created by and for state legislators, the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that organizes over 1,000 environmentally-committed state legislators from all 50 states and both parties. NCEL provides venues and opportunities for lawmakers to share ideas and collaborate on environmental issues.
