LaCrosse presses state to support renewable energy

Message 2/10/2005 from Guy Wolf:

On Tuesday Night, 25 student Progressives and myself traveled to La Crosse City Hall to pass a resolution supporting a WI State increase in renewable energies. The goal (supported by Xcel and by Dairyland Power) would increase the State of WI to 10% by 2010 – still behind MN’s goal of 20%. The bill would also require a 20% requirement for all State buildings. The resolution passed 14-1! We become the 6th city in the State to do so! (Now on to the La Crosse County Board of Supervisors).

Our victories at the Preston Tire (burning) Plant, the La Crosse County Board of Supervisors vote to support the Preston Environmental Impact Statement, our vote Tuesday night, and the Douglas County Vote to stop the transmission line are all good reasons to attend this Sunday’s, Feb 13 Noon – 3 PM potluck, music, and speakers at the Houston Community Center, 109 West Maple, Houston, MN (35 minutes east of La Crosse).

We will be carpooling from the Cartwright Circle at UWL at 11:20, so if anyone is interested in a ride, please let us know.
