Green Meetings Act Update
In update to the post last month, Rep. Schwartz' Green Meetings Act was passed by a voice vote as an amendment to H.R. 3221, the New Direction for Energy Independence, National Security, and Consumer Protection Act. As an amendment to the House energy bill (H.R. 3221), this bill must now be negotiated together with the Senate energy bill. After that, the House and Senate most vote on a final energy bill. If it passes both chambers, then it will be sent to the president for his signature. A great first step to support greener meetings, but this proposal still has a ways to go before it can be signed into law.
