State Legislature briefs: Green jobs promoted
ST. PAUL - A group of Minnesota legislators says 70,000 Minnesotans could hold clean-energy jobs if lawmakers approve a list of recommendations.
The legislators say 50,000 so-called "green jobs" would be retained and 20,000 added - with $15 billion added to the state's economy by 2020.
Among the recommendations is to establish a "green enterprise authority" to help new and existing energy businesses.
