About this Legislation
Chief Author

The Senate Jobs, Energy, and Commerce Omnibus Bill, in part, provides policy and funding on energy and utility issues in Minnesota. Significant elements of the bill include Renewable Development Account expenditures, such as: Solar for Schools, community energy transition grants, and the National Sports Center solar array. In addition, the bill provides funding for an advanced nuclear study and language for state support of a tribal advocacy council on energy and increased allocations for the solar energy production incentive program.

However, the Senate version of SF 4091 does not include substantial general fund investments that are included in the House version, leaving out appropriations for electric vehicle infrastructure and assistance, weatherization assistance, public-private partnership investment in innovative technology and integration, state competitiveness funding for federal investment leverage, and the Buy Clean Task Force.


SF 4091, the Jobs, Energy, and Commerce Omnibus bill passed the Senate floor.

Conference Committee successfully adopted a compromise conference report with the House’s version of the Jobs, Energy, and Commerce Omnibus bill, but the legislation was not passed before the adjournment of session.
