Meet with your State Representative Kim Norton in Rochester!

March 15, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Enjoying Minnesota’s Great Outdoors is part of our way of life. Your state leaders have an opportunity to build a clean energy economy and protect our cherished environment today and for generations to come.

Please join your State Representative Kim Norton and the Sierra Club – North Star Chapter for a discussion of critical environmental and conservation issues being heard this Legislative Session.

For location information, please RSVP to taraskar@mepartnership.org, 651-789-0659

Discussion topics will include:

  • Move Minnesota: Learn how new transportation funding will enable the state to expand access and opportunity for all while producing living wage jobs.
  • Green Land Clean Water: Our 2014 priorities include phasing out triclosan, an ineffective and dangerous chemical agent in anti-bacterial soaps; investing in high-performance crop development through the U of M Forever Green Initiative; and re-establishing the Legislative Water Commission.
  • Clean Energy & Jobs: Learn how improving energy-efficiency opportunities for schools, creating low-cost energy-efficiency financing tools for businesses, simplifying standards for installing systems that generate clean energy, like solar and wind, will help us reach a goal of 50% renewable energy by 2030.

The Minnesota Environmental Partnership is a coalition of more than 70 environmental and conservation-focused nonprofits who have collectively identified these priorities.
