Recipients of the award have championed an all-of-the-above energy strategy for Minnesota to ensure that consumers and businesses have access to affordable and reliable electricity.
“The Coalition is proud to recognize the work of Rep. Isaac Schultz (R-Elmdale Township) who is dedicated to ensuring that hardworking Minnesota families have access to affordable and reliable electricity,” said Luke Hellier, Executive Director of the Coalition. “Rep. Schultz has been a champion for creating an all-of-the-above approach to energy which includes base-load power like coal, gas, and nuclear.”
