Betsy believes clean air and clean water are basic human rights, and that we all bear responsibility for preventing the acceleration of climate change. Reducing greenhouse gases and finding solutions to combat climate change will be a top priority for Betsy. She supports alternative energies to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and will work to strike a balance between protecting our environment, and meeting Illinoisians energy needs.

Betsy will work to:

  • Make new investments in energy producing communities
  • Protect our public lands and waters
  • Invest in safer, cleaner and modern infrastructure to upgrade our electrical grids, waterways, road and bridges
  • Expand clean energy and research development
  • Reduce methane emissions and eradicate lead poisoning by repairing and replacing old, leaky pipes
  • Maintain full funding of the Natural Resources Conservation Service to help farmers improve soil health, build resiliency and promote conservation of land and water


Betsy is proud to be endorsed by the League of Conservation Voters and the Sierra Club!
