Additionally, the bill, SD 1932 would phase out fossil fuels in all commercial sectors by 2050, the Associated Press reported.

SD 1932, filed by state representatives Sean Garballey and Marjorie Decker, would set binding targets for renewable energy growth in all sectors and issue regulations to ensure the 2050 goal is met.
