The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) is a state bill in Illinois that would commit the state to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050, cut carbon from the power sector by 2030, reduce gas and diesel vehicles from the transportation sector, and create good, clean jobs for disadvantaged workers in Illinois.
CEJA includes Jobs to Move America’s signature good jobs policy, the U.S. Employment Plan, which will ensure that the massive investments Illinois makes in clean infrastructure also stave off the social impacts of climate change by investing in good jobs and communities. By including this good jobs policy, CEJA will make sure that all public purchases of transit equipment, electric school buses, electric municipal fleets, and related charging infrastructure will create good jobs and advance equity.
The legislation is set to be introduced and passed this legislative session.
