NCBPA is leading efforts to enable this valuable legislation to save taxpayers $1.1 Billion via energy and water savings projects in publicly-owned buildings. Sponsored by Rep. John Szoka (R-45), Rep. Dean Arp (R-69), Rep. Stephen Ross (R-63) and Rep. Chris Humphrey (R-12). this legislation made it through NC’s “Crossover” deadline a few weeks ago and is waiting in Senate Rules to be brought forward by committee.
HB330 the “Efficient Government Buildings & Savings Act”, passed the House 111-2 in early April. Since then, the bill has been waiting in Senate Rules to be prioritized by legislators and brought forward in a committee. With crossover complete, NCBPA is working with Senators on both sides of the aisle and the State and Local Government Committee to have it heard. In just a few minutes, I’m meeting with Sen. John Alexander (R-18), Chair of this Committee, and several of our member professionals to seek his support.
Why should you support this legislation? The bill will put our industry to work on nearly $800 million worth of construction projects that net taxpayers $252 million in energy and water savings. Whether your company receives work through this bill or you as an individual will benefit from the tax savings, you can speak out in support of it.
