SAINT PAUL, MN – Monday night, Rep. Alice Hausman received the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy’s (MCEA) Paddling Upstream Award. The award recognizes efforts to protect Minnesota’s environment and celebrate MCEA’s beginnings.
According to MCEA’s announcement, the award ‘recognizes [Rep. Hausman’s] many actions during the 2016 and 2017 sessions to protest legislation and agency actions that would weaken our key environmental laws.’ The nomination continues to praise Rep. Hausman for her ‘commitment to challenging the unwise PolyMet mining project.’
“I am honored to receive this environmental award,” said Rep. Hausman. “Like most Minnesotans, I want to preserve and protect our beautiful environment – now and for future generations. MCEA’s decades-long work reflects my legislative efforts and interests. I am humbled to be recognized by this respected organization.
MCEA also recognizes Rep. Hausman’s efforts to secure adequate transit project funding to benefit the state and its increasingly mobile population.
