Meet with your State Senator and Representatives in Faribault!

March 22, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

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 Senator Vicki Jensen, Representative Patti Fritz, Representative John Petersburg, and the Minnesota Environmental Partnership 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.
