AASA Supports the Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act

This week, Representatives Matt Cartwright (PA) and Peter Welch (VT) reintroduced the Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act (H.R. 627). The bipartisan bill has the support of education and environmental advocacy groups and 43 bipartisan cosponsors.  It was first introduced in 2014 and unanimously passed the House in 2014 and 2016. A companion bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate soon.

The bill would create a system to help schools better navigate available federal programs and financing options for energy efficiency improvements to their facilities, potentially saving schools time and money. AASA was proud to support this bill along with both principal associations and other education groups.
