Despite touching on energy policy in his speech, Governor Snyder and the Michigan Legislature have yet to offer a substantive proposal or take meaningful leadership when it comes to clean energy” said Mike Berkowitz, Legislative Director of the Sierra Club Michigan Chapter. “Transitioning to renewable energy means cleaner air, cleaner water, and less asthma attacks for people living in communities near coal plants. The health of our children and the legacy of the Great Lakes are at risk. We can’t afford to wait.”
