With the Clean Energy package now through the House, Michigan Dems are creating a cleaner, greener Michigan
LANSING — Today, Michigan Dems in the House passed the Clean Energy Future Package to protect Michigan’s environment and create more high-quality, green jobs. Not only have Democrats taken significant steps to lead Michigan’s economy into the future, but this bill package will help preserve Michigan’s natural resources to deliver a cleaner future for generations to come.
“This package is a huge step forward in fighting the climate crisis in Michigan while also building a prosperous economy for the future,” said Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party Lavora Barnes. “Republicans want to keep Michigan in the past and help only the wealthiest 1%, but Michigan Democrats are protecting the environment and making Michigan a national example of economic innovation. With these bills, our Democratic leaders have protected Michigan’s middle-class workers, their jobs, and the environment.”
This legislation will set an important example for the rest of the country on what it looks like to innovate with carbon-free and renewable energy production, and put the Great Lakes State in a position to capture billions in public and private funding and drive job creation, ensuring that cost savings impact communities and families across the state. This plan creates a 50% renewable energy standard by 2030 and 60% by 2035.
