Function: Advise commissioner on implementation of program to solicit contributions, manage receipts and distribute funds for statewide fuel fund.
History: Mark Shepard notes in his 2009 "Executive Branch Advisory Groups" report that this group has expired.

The Emergency Energy Assistance Advisory Council was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for the council to be repealed.
Membership: At least one-third of the advisory council must be composed of persons from households that are eligible for emergency energy assistance under the federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. The remaining two-thirds of the advisory council must be composed of persons representing energy providers, customers, local energy assistance providers, existing fuel fund delivery agencies, and community action agencies. Members of the advisory council may receive expenses, but no other compensation, as provided in section 15.059, subdivision 3. Appointment and removal of members is governed by section 15.059.
Note: The Legislative Reference Library may have additional reports on or by this group available through our catalog.
