Testimony has been deferred on two bills aimed at overhauling Michigan’s energy policy.

Democrats in the Michigan Legislature have pushed the carbon-neutral energy goal a further five years, to 2040, after gathering input from interest groups.

A wide-reaching package of bills is being considered in Lansing this fall, which had originally stated a goal of getting the state’s utilities off fossil fuels. There are concerns that the current language would lead to the potential of negative impact reliability.

Some environmental groups have voiced concerns that the current legislative language doesn’t do enough to protect the environment.
