Senate Appropriations Approves Energy Efficiency Bill

The Senate Appropriations committee unanimously approved The State Agency Green Technology Implementation Act, which provides for testing of new, environmentally beneficial and energy efficient technologies within various state agencies.

The secretary of the Department of General Services is authorized to direct a state agency, with the approval of the governor, to test certain technology, products or processes that promote energy conservation or efficiency on a trial basis.

House Bill 1672, sponsored by House Environmental Resources & Energy Chair Ron Miller, was approved by the House (Vote Y: 189/N: 8) last year.
