Look for these initiatives when the General Assembly convenes in the new year.

There is not much information on possible legislation for the upcoming General Assembly session, but the following are likely to be introduced and, if so, will be priorities for the Club.


Clean Cars Bill – will specify that a certain percentage of sales for each car manufacturer must be advanced technology vehicles (hybrids) in order to address emissions contributing to global warming and air pollution.


Energy Efficiency Legislation – will address the efficiency standards of primarily commercial products, but also residential gas furnaces and boilers.
