Pending U.S. Legislation that will Affect Energy Codes.

According to an article written by Architecture 2030, the current U.S. House Bill, H.R. 2454: American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009, is vital to AIA goals. The bill was passed by the House and is now on the U.S. Senate floor pending a vote.

The article highlights just how important the passage of this bill is, “ No matter what else is compromised or changed in the climate bill working its way through the Senate, Section 201 must not be changed or weakened. Why? Because all other energy and emissions reduction approaches pale in comparison to what Section 201 will accomplish. Without it, we simply cannot meet the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets called for in the bill. We won’t even come close.”

The article goes on to highlight how the new building energy codes will change current standards. You can read the entire article here.
