State Lawmakers Continue to Prioritize Climate Change Policy
January 24, 2024 | Ben Fallick
Even though it is early in the year, state legislators around the country have already proposed many bills to institute new renewable energy targets, control carbon emissions, and create additional programs to help achieve these goals. A major focus we’re seeing so far is legislation to establish carbon capture or sequestration programs within state energy departments. These programs would look to assist business and research to learn more about what role their state can play in carbon capture. Another approach is the search for new energy sources to “green” states’ energy reliance as they set and revise renewable energy goals. States continue to look for non-traditional, renewable energy sources that have become more popular in recent years.
