A Regional Perspective: A unified voice for Midwestern Governors


A Message 
from our Chair

As Chair of the MGA, I look forward to working with my fellow Midwestern governors on growing the Midwest’s energy economy. As we undergo a national energy transition, the MGA region has experienced and will continue to experience a number of power plant closures and it’s important that we assist these communities as they forge a new path. Additionally, continuing the MID-GRID 2035 initiatives is vital so that we can continue to have access to a secure and reliable electric grid that can meet the changing energy needs of our states and region. We need to continue to empower Midwestern Communities.

Most Midwesterners enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life. Our four distinct seasons, cultural and sporting activities, culinary delights, affordability, natural beauty, and the friendly nature of its residents continue to make the region a go-to location. The Midwest has a thriving pulse from international city-centers to urban regrowth to rural communities serving as our nation’s backbone. With quality education systems, low crime rates, close-knit communities and numerous outdoor recreational activities, Midwestern states and their rural communities continue to be excellent places to live, work, raise a family and grow a business.  

I look forward to working with my fellow governors to ensure our region continues to be the best place to live, work, start a family, get an education, visit, do business and someday even retire.
