Episode 22: Representative Elaine Nekritz
Elaine has been one of the architects Illinois’ current heading to be a 100% clean energy state by 2050. She served in the IL legislature for nearly 15 years, chairing several committees and ultimately co-authoring what became the Future Energy Jobs Act of 2016—a law that approaches renewable energy expansion from a green jobs perspective, building clean energy job training centers in disadvantaged communities throughout the state. Representative Nekritz is also expert in transportation issues, having chaired the Midwest Interstate Passenger Rail Commission.
