As we’ve taken a deep dive into education and jobs, we’ve seen a clear pattern emerge. The Senate, with its bipartisan coalition focused on common-sense solutions, offers up legislation to address some of the challenges we face as a state, only to see needed reforms ignored in the House of Representatives.
Unfortunately, this was a situation that played out again on the issue of energy and environmental policy.
Below is an update on just a few of the energy and environmental policies addressed in the 2014 legislative session. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this issue, as well as any new ideas about how we can help the state focus on energy and environmental policies that protect the environment, while also reducing our energy costs and encouraging economic growth.
