Some of Minnesota's most precious treasures are our clean air and beautiful lakes. We as Minnesotans value our natural treasures and know we need to preserve and protect them. Protecting our environment helps all Minnesotans. Cleaner air helps combat rising childhood asthma. Reducing emissions help farmers who are facing increasing field flooding. Water pollution ruins the fishing and game-hunting populations that Minnesotan sportsmen enjoy. And investing in renewable energy creates high quality jobs. Together we can make Minnesota safer and secure our energy independence.
We all agree that pollution, unclear air, and dangerous water, aren't good for anybody. I'll work with people on both sides of the aisle to ensure Minnesotans have common-sense solutions to protect their state.
