CSG’s Energy and Environmental Public Policy Committee provides a forum for state leaders to address emerging challenges and issues arising from dynamic energy-related and environmental conditions. Members of the committee focus on emerging trends, innovative and effective solutions, and viable policy positions and response projects. During meetings, committee members may introduce and consider policy resolutions. The committee is designed to encourage multi-state problem solving and sharing of best practices, and to facilitate networking among state officials and between the public and private sectors. Committee priorities are established by CSG’s national leaders in concert with the committee’s membership. Committee priorities include: the Future of Coal, Clean Water Act Legal Action and States, Energy Infrastructure Hardening, Effectively Managing the Energy Wave, and EPA Air Regulations.
