Elaine has been one of the architects Illinois’ current heading to be a 100% clean energy state by 2050. She served in the IL legislature for nearly 15 years, chairing several committees and ultimately co-authoring what became the Future Energy Jobs Act of 2016—a law that approaches renewable energy expansion from a green jobs perspective, building clean energy job training centers in disadvantaged communities throughout the state.
