Energy & Environment Committee

The Energy & Environment Committee provides a forum in which legislators can engage in the exchange of information and ideas on relevant policy topics at all levels of government. It represents state government on key regional and national issues, promotes the importance of energy and environmental concerns, and works toward collaborative solutions to strengthen the west.
