We have an opportunity like never before to invest in our people, our communities and our future.
In 2022, Governor Whitmer unveiled the MI Healthy Climate Plan, Michigan’s pathway to reduce dangerous pollution in our air and water, improve our energy reliability, create jobs and transition Michigan to 100% carbon-free clean energy.
Now, lawmakers in the State House and Senate have introduced legislation to put the governor’s plan into law.
Michigan is poised to be a leader in clean energy jobs of the future, while also reducing energy costs and improving reliability of our electric grid.
We must ensure this legislation is passed and signed into law by Governor Whitmer. Send a message to your lawmaker supporting them in building Michigan’s clean energy future.
