The worst energy bill ever passed the Minnesota House

Last night (Earth Day) the worst energy bill ever passed the House floor by a vote of 73 to 56.

Before final passage, Rep. Melissa Hortman moved to amend the bill to include legislative findings. Specifically the amendment would have added  “The legislature finds that: (1) climate change is real; and (2) human activity that increases greenhouse gas emissions contributes significantly to climate change.” The Hortman amendment failed 58 for and 71 against.

You can see Republican Majority leader Peppin encourage members to vote no because the amendment is “ridiculous.”
