Michigan's energy policy will become a hotter topic in the final months of 2013. Officials have held a series of energy public forums around the state this year. This Friday, Governor Rick Snyder will begin sharing the results with the public and the legislature. The legislature is expected to spend 2014 addressing state energy policy.

 

 The Governor has called for a statewide energy plan, and earlier this year, he voiced support for an increase of the percentage of Michigan electricity generated by renewable resources. James Clift, the Policy Director of the Michigan Environmental Council, helps us understand the upcoming Michigan energy debate.
