Commitment to Action

New Energy for the States

Commitment by

Bluegreen Alliance

In 2005, the Apollo Alliance, a partnership between the Center for American Progress and the Campaign for America's Future, committed to build and support coalitions for change in energy policy in California, Ohio, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. This five-state campaign will build on Apollo's regional organizing, moving concrete legislation and mobilizing powerful political constituencies toward clean energy policy action.
Since the launch of the Apollo Alliance, legislators and policymakers in Oregon, Wisconsin, and Los Angeles, California have been working to pass and promote legislation in support of clean energy. These measures include a ballot initiative to spur the growth of Oregon's biofuels industry and build the state's clean energy 'brain trust'; the Energy Independence through Renewable Fuels Bill in Washington state; and SB 459, a bill that would increase Wisconsin's use of renewable energy to 10% by 2015.
