This morning the House took testimony on PA 295 of 2008, part of the 2008 energy package that specifically deals with energy efficiency and renewable energy. The League was supportive of the 2008 package, and as a member of the Michigan Energy Michigan Jobs Coalition continues to support energy efficiency and renewable energy measures.
We submitted written testimony to the committee of the importance of energy efficiency and renewable energy that you can view here: energy & tech memj 9_13
