Clean energy is vital to our state’s success
By Pat Spearman | March 10, 2016
Two things should be crystal clear to Nevada policymakers this year: climate change is real, and climate change represents the single best economic development opportunity for Nevada since we legalized gambling in 1931.
That’s why I was so disappointed to see the Nevada attorney general, Adam Laxalt, involve our state in a poorly conceived lawsuit that could slow down our transition to a clean-energy future. Just as Gov. Brian Sandoval and legislative leaders are taking meaningful, bipartisan steps to continue to position Nevada as a national and regional clean-energy leader, the attorney general is trying to block important clean-power standards that will help grow Nevada’s economy and create good-paying middle-class jobs.
