SPRINGFIELD, Ill. –To help combat climate change and continue her advocacy for clean energy, state Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, is backing the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA).
“The CEJA is one of the first of many steps we must take to help address climate change and create a better future for Illinois,” Mussman said. “This legislation will not only help our environment, but it will also benefit our economy by creating job opportunities for Illinois residents.”
Mussman’s House Bill 3624 would set the goal for Illinois to run entirely on renewable energy by 2050. The CEJA aims to ensure a structured transition to renewable energy by creating a $25 million clean jobs workforce hub and implementing clean energy empowerment zones. The CEJA will also promote a vehicle electrification program to help further reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“We must take action now in order to protect our environment and provide a better future for generations to come,” Mussman said. “This legislation is a smart investment in our planet, our economy and our future.”
