Architects Issue Statement as Energy Legislation Goes To Conference

Washington, D.C.  July 13, 2016 – The American Institute of Architects (AIA) today issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate Tuesday voted to form a conference committee to reconcile differences between its energy bill and one that passed the House. As currently written, both bills repeal of Section 433 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which sets carbon neutrality targets for new and renovated federal buildings by 2030. The AIA fervently opposes any such repeal.

Please attribute to AIA President Russ Davidson, FAIA.

“With Congress as close to passing an energy bill as it has been in nearly a decade, it’s vitally important that Uncle Sam remain a leader globally in conserving energy in federal buildings.

“That’s why hope the conference committee works in a bipartisan manner to move energy policy into the 21st century, while preserving fossil fuel reduction goals. As nearly 200 of the nation’s architects converge on Capitol Hill today and tomorrow ( http://new.aia.org/events/8531-speakup-2016) that will be one of their primary, key messages.”
