LAS VEGAS, Nev. — In response to Senator Chris Brooks’ announcement of his resignation from the Nevada Senate to join private-sector energy, the Nevada Conservation League issued the following statement from Executive Director Paul Selberg:
“In the State Legislature, Chris Brooks has been invaluable to the progress we have made to create and expand Nevada’s clean energy economy and combat the climate crisis. He led the charge to increase the state’s renewable portfolio standard and create better methods to monitor carbon emissions. Most recently Senator Brooks championed legislation to expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure, invest in energy efficiency programs, and for the first time ever, support actions needed to join Nevada in a Regional Transmission Organization. It is through his advocacy, commitment, and leadership that has positioned Nevada as a leader in clean and renewable energy, addressing climate pollution, and prioritizing healthy and safe communities.
While we are saddened to hear that Senator Brooks will be resigning from the Nevada Senate, we know that in his new position he will continue to serve our state with the same dedication to a clean energy future. We thank Senator Brooks for his service and are excited to follow his work in his new role.”
