CLEVELAND, WI (WHBL) - U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin used Lakeshore Technical College to help promote her alternative energy education bill yesterday. She spoke at the Cleveland campus about the GREEN Act, which stands for Grants for Renewable Energy Education for the Nation.
The bill would provide funding for postsecondary schools with green energy curriculum to expand into the middle and high school levels. It also would help technical schools fund projects to make them model training facilities for green energy jobs.
Baldwin said the bill will help the growing ‘green collar’ job sector, which currently has more people in it that the fossil fuel field.
While at LTC, Baldwin took time to tour the current wind turbine education facilities and meet with students in the program.
