ST. CHARLES, Ill. –To discuss the Clean Energy Jobs Act and hear local residents’ ideas on how to protect the environment, state Rep. Karina Villa, D-West Chicago, is hosting a Clean Energy Town Hall next week.
“Since Earth is the only home we have, it is critical that Illinois continues to advance its steps as one of the nation’s leaders in fighting climate change, advancing energy efficiency and promoting a green economy,” said Villa. “I invite local residents to stop by my Clean Energy Town Hall to learn about the importance of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, promoting the use of renewable resources and to share thoughts or ideas on what more Illinois can do to address global climate change.”
Villa is partnering with the League of Women Voters – Central Kane County and the Sierra Club Valley of the Fox Group to host a town hall about the proposed Clean Energy Jobs Act. Villa has advocated for the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA), introduced as House Bill 3624, to increase the state’s renewable energy targets to run entirely on renewable resources by 2050. Through this process, CEJA will also ensure the transition to clean energy and an equitable green economy throughout the state. For her continued efforts to support the environment, Villa was recently distinguished with a 100 percent pro-environment rating by the Illinois Environmental Council.
