LAST CHANCE: Tell the Senate to Keep Moving Forward on Sustainability
By Andrew Goldberg, Managing Director, Government Relations & Outreach

    When Congress returns from its August recess, one of the first items on its agenda is energy efficiency. How the Senate votes in the coming weeks will determine whether architects can continue making federal buildings more sustainable, or whether Washington rolls back policies that help save energy and lower taxpayer costs.

    We need your help to tell the Senate that moving forward on energy efficiency is the right choice.

    Join hundreds of architecture firms and other businesses in telling the Senate to strengthen energy efficiency goals. The deadline for signing on is Wednesday, September 4.  Make sure your voice is heard!

    To learn more about the issue, please read a fact-sheet on Myths vs Realities of Section 433, a one-page summary of the Whitehouse amendment, and these talking points on the issue.
