Bill Would Reverse Green Initiatives for New Federal Buildings

June 14, 2013

A bipartisan group of lawmakers has introduced a bill to repeal a law requiring federal buildings to use less fossil fuel generated energy, saying the provision is detrimental to the coal industry.

The legislation -- sponsored by Reps. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky.; Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.; Dave McKinley, R-W.Va.; and William Enyart, D-Ill. -- would undo a part of the 2007 Energy Conservation and Production Act that applies to new or modified federal buildings costing at least $2.5 million.
