A full Senate vote is the next step for legislation that seeks to make federal buildings more energy efficient. The bill, which the Environment and Public Works Committee approved March 29, requires the General Services Administration to speed use of “cost-effective lighting technologies” and other steps to cut utility costs in buildings it owns or leases. It also provides grants to local governments to achieve similar gains in their buildings.
