Minnesota has an opportunity to be a national leader in this area. Governor Walz recently announced that Minnesota will be the first Midwestern state to adopt clean car standards. Minnesotans will have more options when choosing a car because manufacturers will sell vehicles that emit lower levels of greenhouse gases and other pollutants and vehicles with ultra-low or no tailpipe emissions, including electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids. That means savings at the pump, better air quality, and a significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.
More information about clean car standards is available here and at mn.gov/cleancars.
Make Your Voice Heard
As Minnesotans, we’re proud of our clean air and water, abundant natural resources, and outdoor heritage. We want to protect the things that make our state such a special place to live for future generations to enjoy. Since protecting the environment is a priority in our community and state, I’m holding a forum dedicated to this issue on Wednesday, November 20. I hope you can join me!
Reminder: TCE Town Hall
As I’ve mentioned in previous emails, Conservation Minnesota is holding a town hall on TCE-related issues. Please join me tomorrow to learn more about my bill to ban TCE and other work that I’ve done with residents and other elected officials and bring your questions!
When: Saturday, October 26 from 10 – 11:30 a.m.
Where: Hanifl Performing Arts Center, 4941 Long Ave., White Bear Lake, MN 55110
