President Obama signed the American Energy Manufacturing Technical Corrections Act (H.R. 6582) on Wednesday after the bill received bipartisan support in Congress.
Yes, you read that right: "bipartisan support"! Here's the whole story from Greentech Media, which ends with this emphasis:
On the local and federal level, it’s hard to argue with the fact that energy efficiency is not just a money-saver, but also a job creator. It is that message that will be key in pushing through legislation amongst politicians, who love to toss around jobs numbers. After all, you can’t outsource retrofitting a window.
