While the Trump Administration is currently touting their latest rollback of climate and clean air regulations, states are continuing this week to take up the mantle and make significant and substantive progress on clean energy policies that will reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and build a clean energy economy that works for everyone.
Just last week we declared 2019 “the most productive state legislative sessions for clean energy and climate action in history.” We’re running out of superlatives because this week three more states made historic climate progress as part of the Clean Energy for All campaign:
…and these are just the three latest examples of states making clean energy progress. In total, 12 states – Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Maryland, Maine, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, South Carolina, and Washington – in the Conservation Voters Movement have enacted major Clean Energy for All priorities so far in 2019.

For a deeper dive, you can read our report on the first 100 days of the governors who made commitments to 100% clean energy.
