Re: E-M:/ Oklahoma Legislature passed LEED silver requirement for state financed buildings

Enviro-Mich message from "Maggie Fields" <fieldsm@michigan.gov>

For those not aware, Michigan's Governor Granholm issued Executive Directive #2005-4 on Earthday, three years ago, requiring all state buildings, and university and college buildings constructed with state funding ($1M or more) meet LEED standards.  This was modified but essentially restated by Executive Directive #2007-22.   Both Directives are aimed at efforts to make the state more energy efficient and save money.   These can be found at:  www.michigan.gov/gov

The Oklahoma Legislature has just enacted legislation that would require all
state financed buildings (but exempting schools) to be build to LEED silver
