Thermal insulation measures gaining momentum on Capitol Hill
Introduced by U.S. Reps. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) and Jerry McNerney (D-Calif.), H.R. 4801 provides a clear mechanism for the federal government to conserve resources and cut spending in working toward a viable energy strategy for the future. A coalition letter sent to representatives Kinzinger and McNerney stated that vast amounts of energy, water and money are needlessly wasted every day by current heating and cooling techniques. Improved insulation measures would have an immense impact on the U.S. economy as a whole.
