Clean Energy States Alliance's Milford makes case for federal-state partnership in stimulus

Could a federal-state partnership on clean energy projects help create new jobs? Could federal regulations slow the progress states have made on clean energy? During today's OnPoint, Lewis Milford, founder and president of the Clean Energy States Alliance, a nonprofit coalition of the nation's leading state clean energy funds and programs, makes the case for creating a partnership between federal and state governments to more efficiently distribute funds for stimulus projects. Milford also explains how such a partnership could be applied to cap-and-trade and renewable portfolio standard legislation.
