Hello Green Biz Community!
So here we are, beginning of April, 2010, and we are closer than ever before to passing legislation that will guarantee a stable future for renewable energy, global climate, and green businesses. Right now there are two different Bills being debated in Congress that represent our last hope to advance this cause. Most experts believe that the Democrats will loose their majority in the elections this upcoming November. Thus, we may be facing our last chance in the near future to pass a legislative act that will ensure a clean energy and sustainable future for the United States of America.
Our goal as the Green Business community is to educate ourselves about the details of these bills and how it will impact our industry; BEFORE all the details get skewed by the media and the opposition. If you are interested in learning more about The Clean Energy and Security Act (Waxman) and The Clean Energy Act (Graham), I have posted this article on my personal blog for just that purpose. I have provided the full text versions of both bills for you to download, and a short summary and comparison of each one. Feel free to leave any questions or comments so we can start a discussion on this issue.
