The Clean Energy Jobs Act is on its way!
The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) is gaining momentum in Springfield! We are building support in the legislature to pass CEJA in the short “veto” session this fall. We have a majority of the senate now, but we need ten more cosponsors in the House to guarantee a majority there.
CEJA mandates a strong policy and practice to develop clean energy options by replacing fossil-fuel-powered vehicles with electric vehicles, developing a carbon-free power sector for Illinois by 2030, and providing 100% renewable energy for Illinois by 2050. CEJA provides a workable plan for job growth and training, especially for economically disadvantaged communities of color, communities impacted by pollution, and former fossil fuel workers.
