For nearly 50 years, Minnesota has had an environmental citizens’ board, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Citizens’ Board, which has been one of the only venues for Minnesotans to challenge and improve many proposed development projects that negatively affect our environment and our water. 

Burning Tires is NOT Clean Energy!

HB 4297 and the Nesbitt energy plan is a step in the wrong direction, instead of a step toward making us a leader in clean energy policy. This proposed legislation would classify the burning of hazardous waste, including tires, as renewable energy and is nothing more than a cynical attempt to hijack Michigan’s renewable energy definition for the benefit of corporate polluters.
