Protecting Our Environment

The scientific community has presented indisputable evidence of substantial climate change resulting from greenhouse gas emissions and industrial pollution. In the face of a federal government administration that actively denies climate change and is rolling back critical regulations, Illinois must be a leader in pushing forward green energy policies for the 21st century.  

as State Representative, Will Guzzardi...

  • Used his seat on the Environment Committee in Springfield to push for more regulation of greenhouse gases, punish polluters and expand clean energy in Illinois

  • Co-sponsored HB 2607, the Clean Jobs Bill, which is a broad package of proposals that aims to overhaul the energy sector in Illinois and promote investment in wind, solar and other renewable energy instead of subsidizing the fossil fuel industry

  • Advocated for expanded incentives for energy efficiency (e.g. insulating homes, changing lightbulbs, etc.)

  • Supports job-training programs that put people to work weatherizing buildings and learning the new trades of a clean energy economy

  • Fights to ensure that the 39th District has green space in its neighborhoods
