Description

The Energy Conservation and Optimization Act of 2021, also known as the ECO Act, successfully passed the legislature and was signed into law by Governor Tim Walz May 25.  

Senator Jason Rarick, R-Pine City, is the author of the bill, and Senator Nick Frentz, DFL-North Mankato, is the DFL caucus chair on clean energy and climate change.  They join Capitol Report moderator Shannon Loehrke to talk about how the new law will improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases in Minnesota.

Also in the program, highlights from a recent meeting of the Housing Working Group on the proposed off-ramp from the eviction moratorium and two Republican-led press conferences.  GOP lawmakers spoke to the press about an end to Governor Walz's use of peacetime emergency powers and about the inclusion of educational savings accounts in the state's next two-year education budget.
