Clean Energy Jobs Bill: HB 2020

HB2020 is still receiving amendments! Senator Dembrow says he expects Legislative Council to have another draft by May 3rd or May 6th. This will be an omnibus HB2020-84. There are several actions we can take. Please keep checking the JCCR schedule on OLIS for hearing dates.

  1. Please write (email) to supporters on the Joint Committee on Carbon Reduction say thank you for the improvements we saw in the -13 and urge them to keep these improvements and make the bill even stronger. Reference materials for letters attached (same as last week). Let’s show them support, they are working hard.
  2. Attend the hearings so the Committee knows we are still watching them and expecting the best.
