As a result of a lawsuit, a federal judge has required FHFA to conduct a public rulemaking on their actions to derail PACE energy efficiency and renewable energy retrofit programs.
This is a great chance to 1) make the case on the merits of PACE, 2) defend local government rights to establish PACE programs, and 3) propose new guidelines that get these job creating, bill saving programs back on track. Interested parties have until March 26 to weigh in. So who’s responded so far?
The Mayor of Binghamton, for one (pdf). Thanks Mayor Ryan.
Patrick Leahy, Bernard Sanders, and Peter Welch, members of Congress. Not bad, not bad.
National Association of Cities, National League of Counties, and The United States Conference of Mayors (pdf). Now we’re talking!
