PHOENIX — Democratic Governor Katie Hobbs announced Thursday that her policy agenda intends to “decarbonize” Arizona’s economy by 2050.
The Democrat embraced Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Douglas Emhoff as they arrived at Luke Air Force Base and then followed the vice president to a groundbreaking ceremony for the Ten West Link transmission line project in Tonopah. Other attendees included Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm and Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland.
“This new transmission line is a game-changer for our region and a major milestone toward the Biden-Harris administration’s goals of a carbon-free power sector by 203 as well as Arizona’s commitment to a de-carbonized economy by 2050,” Hobbs said.
She then applauded “the leadership of the Biden-Harris administration,” adding, “Vice President Harris, thank you for your commitment to our state and for being here with us today. It is truly an honor.”
Harris responded later in the ceremony, “Governor Katie Hobbs, I want to thank you for your leadership and for welcoming us to this beautiful state.”
