In the gridlocked congress there is actually one piece of legislation that seems to have good bipartisan support.
The SAVE Act: Sensible Accounting to Value Energy [S. 1737]
- help revive housing
- stimulate the overall economy
- encourage energy efficiency
- and by some estimations create over 80,000 new jobs and save $1.1 billion in annual energy bill savings
See this link for an excellent recap on this critical piece of legislation that should be passed in 2012. The Greenest Insulation Blog encourages everyone to contact their legislators to support passage of the SAVE Act.
