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

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
standards.

Oklahoma HB 3394 can be found at:

feasible. The question is whether it's politically feasible or economically
feasible."
