Many of the bills introduced this year are once again focused on greenhouse gases, energy efficiency, and/or green buildings, in one way or another. The word “green” currently appears in 42 separate pieces of legislation.  Forty-eight (48) bills pertain to the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”).  Sixty-two (62) bills have the word “Green” in them.  And seventy-six (76) measures use the term “energy efficiency.”  Again, we will read all of these measures and identify “the good, the bad, and the ugly,” and hope that you will help us push forward the good ones, fix the bad ones, and stop the latter category.
