Governor Steve Bullock signed an executive order Thursday morning establishing an interim Montana Clean Power Plant Advisory Council. Bullock said the committee will be made up of people from all across Montana.

“Let me start by saying that I firmly believe that we must take action to address climate change,” Bullock said. “Montanans place a very high premium on preserving our environment, outdoor heritage and communities. All Montanans will be affected by the success or failure of our efforts to address climate change, especially our kids, our grand kids and subsequent generations.”

Bullock said it’s inevitable that Montana will be required to address climate change. He said he doesn’t want the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency dictating how the state meets the new requirements.

“Bottom line for me is that we Montanans should control our future,” Bullock said. “Folks who raise their families here, who work here, who hunt here, should ultimately decide what Montana we pass on to our kids and our grand kids, and what that will look like.”

Bullock said Montana needs to come prepared with its own solution within the council if it wants to remain in control if its energy future.
