BLOG TO SAVE ENERGY
On Monday, June 23, the House of Representatives continued their push to increase energy efficiency at the federal, state and local levels to help save taxpayers money and reduce our impact on the environment.
Under suspension of the rules, which blocks amendments and restricts debate to 40 minutes, Members reconsidered two key pieces of energy efficiency legislation during the House’s Energy Week. Both H.R. 4092, the Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act, and H.R. 4801 passed the House by a simple voice vote, with little opposition.
