ST. CHARLES  State Rep. Karina Villa, D-West Chicago, is hosting a town hall meeting on the Clean Energy Jobs Act at 7 p.m. Sept. 23 at the St. Charles Public Library, 1 S. 6th Ave., St. Charles.

“Since Earth is the only home we have, it is critical that Illinois continues to advance its steps as one of the nation’s leaders in fighting climate change, advancing energy efficiency and promoting a green economy,” said Villa in a news release. “I invite local residents to stop by my Clean Energy Town Hall to learn about the importance of reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, promoting the use of renewable resources and to share thoughts or ideas on what more Illinois can do to address global climate change.”

Villa is partnering with the League of Women Voters – Central Kane County and the Sierra Club Valley of the Fox Group to host the meeting, which will discuss the proposed Clean Energy Jobs Act.

The release states that Villa has advocated for the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA), introduced as House Bill 3624, to increase the state’s renewable energy targets to run entirely on renewable resources by 2050. Through this process, CEJA will also ensure the transition to clean energy and an equitable green economy throughout the state, the release stated.

The town hall is open to the public.
