The folks at GreenTechMedia put together a good brief analysis - find it

The engrossed version of the bill is
HERE, and the the VOS section starts on page 155.

Fresh Energy has been providing outstanding analysis and support for the bill as it moved through the Minnesota Legislature. Finds links to the House and Senate bills, and much more at the
Fresh Energy site.

I am proud to have had a chance to support the Minnesota Department of Commerce in its work on the energy portions of the bill, including the VOS section. I even had a chance to testify on the bill, sitting next to great Minnesota leaders,
Deputy Commissioner Bill Grant, Senator John Marty, and Representative Melissa Hortman.

There is important work to do, starting the minute the Governor signs the bill. More news soon!
