Gov. Walz appoints CEE's Mike Bull to Council on Biofuels

Nov 25, 2019

On November 22, Governor Tim Walz announced Mike Bull among appointments to the Governor's Council on Biofuels.

Since 2013, Bull has worked at the Center for Energy and Environment, where he is the director of policy and external affairs. Prior to CEE, Bull held a number of legislative, regulatory, and policy positions in state government, including serving as the Minnesota Department of Commerce's biofuels lead during the Pawlenty administration. In addition to helping forge the Next Generation Energy Act of 2007, Bull helped to develop and pass nation-leading biofuels legislation on biodiesel and ethanol from 2005 to 2008.

Biofuels will continue to play a critical role in Minnesota's economy and in strategies to address climate change. The Governor's Council on Biofuels was created to advise the Governor, the Commissioners of the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Commerce, and the Pollution Control Agency on the role of biofuels in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and to recommend policy and budget proposals to foster growth in the production and use of biofuels.

On the 15-member council, Bull will represent the environmental and clean energy community.
