Statement from Roger Moe and Mike Beard on Passage of Bipartisan Jobs and Energy Legislation

Posted June 12, 2015

SAINT PAUL, MN – “The Coalition for a Secure Energy Future would like to commend the bipartisan leadership and the legislators who voted to support the Jobs and Energy bill during Special Session. This legislation continues to support an all-of-the-above energy approach that is recognized by legislators from both parties and the public as the best way to keep electricity prices low, create jobs, and provide necessary power for our communities. A healthy balance of renewable energy, as well as traditional sources of power like coal, is key to keeping the lights on in Minnesota and protecting the quality of life we’ve come to enjoy.”
