MACKINAC ISLAND — The Michigan Conservative Energy Forum (MCEF) hosted a luncheon today featuring notable guest State Representative Gary Glenn (R - Williams Twp.), Chair of the House Energy Policy Committee, during the 32nd Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference.
MCEF Leadership Council Members, Fellows, and staff were in attendance to speak with Rep. Glenn about Michigan’s recent clean energy progress and discuss conservative solutions to the energy challenges still facing the state and its electric ratepayers.
“I enjoyed meeting with the Michigan Conservative Energy Forum to discuss our state’s energy landscape,” said Representative Glenn. “There is still progress to be made to make Michigan a national energy leader, to open up competition in the marketplace, and to bring down rates. The House Energy Policy Committee will continue to work towards comprehensive energy solutions that improve our economy and diversify our energy sources, while holding utilities and regulators accountable to the people of Michigan.”
“We appreciate Representative Glenn speaking with us about Michigan’s energy future and how conservatives can lead on energy policy issues,” said Larry Ward, executive director of MCEF. “There is great opportunity for Michigan to build upon last year’s energy legislation and continue to improve electric reliability and affordability for ratepayers. MCEF remains committed to working with the Michigan Public Service Commission, State Legislature, and Michigan Agency for Energy to transition our state to cleaner, cheaper, and more efficient forms of energy.”
