Energy

On Thursday the House considered H.R. 5019: the Home Star Energy Retrofit Act which authorizes $6 billion in funding for consumers who renovate their homes and make them more energy efficient. Once funding is appropriated, rebates will be available for improvements such as insulation, windows and duct sealing. H.R. 5019 will create approximately 168,000 jobs in struggling industries like construction and manufacturing. I voted YES. H.R. 5019 passed and the vote is recorded below:
