What Minnesotans are saying about the new Minnesota Climate Action Plan:
Citizens Utility Board of Minnesota:
"Clean energy is good for Minnesotans and good for the planet. CUB is excited and committed to working with the House Climate Action Caucus and appreciates their leadership."
Jessica Tritsch, Senior Campaign Representative with the Minnesota Sierra Club:
"Minnesotans - Black and white, Indigenous and immigrant, urban and rural - want a clean energy future for our children. The climate crisis threatens our health and our planet, disproportionately impacting people of color and poor people in Minnesota. For too long, fossil fuel companies have lied to us about the climate crisis and worked to stop the transformation away from fossil fuels to clean energy. But Minnesotans know better. We know that we must reduce climate emissions while centering communities in our solutions. If adopted, the House Climate Action Caucus Plan will make ambitious progress towards keeping us and our planet healthy, create good jobs, and address racial and economic injustice. Thanks to Climate Caucus Chair Patty Acomb and all the legislators who developed this excellent framework for action."

Steve Clemmer, director of energy research at the Union of Concerned Scientists:
"Speaker Hortman's and Rep. Acomb's Climate Action Plan presents a pathway for Minnesota's future that includes strong, science-based targets to significantly reduce emissions across all sectors. This visionary plan is an important step that ensures all Minnesotans benefit from a just and equitable transition to clean energy while helping to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. UCS looks forward to working with House leaders to turn the plan into enacted legislation that will further cement Minnesota's place as a national leader in deploying clean energy."
Rob Schultz, Executive Director of Audubon Minnesota
"We know that more than 150 bird species in Minnesota are at greater risk due to climate change and that birds are an indicator of our climate health. We applaud the House Climate Action Plan and its attention to the most urgent need facing birds and our community."
