Hearing Held on Sustainability

One of the first issues taken up by the new legislature is sustainable design. Today, the Senate Environment Water & Energy Committee held a hearing on how the state’s public universities are implementing sustainable design on their campuses.

The hearing provided important information on what practices are in place now. This information provides a background for lawmakers prior to the introduction of new sustainable design legislation.

The AIAWA is working with a coalition of organizations to draft and introduce legislation promoting more sustainable design and construction practices for public and private sector buildings.

Representatives from these universities testified: University of Washington, Western Washington University, Evergreen State College, Central Washington University and Washington State University.
