Environmental Groups Oppose Governor's Plan to Save Energy Office


There are fears that the Governor’s Energy Office, which currently promotes renewable and clean energy, could soon be a thing of the past.

Federal funding for the office runs out this year, and a bill backed by Governor John Hickenlooper to come up with more money, and broaden its mission, faces opposition from the environmental community. KUNC’s Bente Birkeland has more from the state capitol.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
