House Passes Cartwright’s Energy Efficiency Bill
Congressman Matt Cartwright’s Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act of 2014 (H.R. 4092) unanimously passed the U.S. House of Representatives. The legislation, introduced by Cartwright in March, would establish a clearinghouse through the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The clearinghouse will publish information on federal programs and financing tools that may be used to develop energy efficiency, distributed generation, and energy retrofitting projects for schools.
“I am pleased that the House unanimously passed my legislation and look forward to working with my colleagues in the Senate to ensure swift action is taken,”said U.S. Rep. Cartwright. “The bill is a strategic and cost-saving measure to help relieve the fiscal pressure felt by schools across the country while increasing our energy security.”
Companion legislation to H.R. 4092 is also advancing in the Senate, introduced as theStreamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act of 2013 (S. 1084) by Senators Mark Udall (CO) and Susan Collins (ME).
“Our pursuit of true energy self-reliance depends on supporting energy-efficiency initiatives. My bipartisan Streamlining Energy Efficiency for Schools Act is essential to ensure that Colorado and the nation's schools can more easily take advantage of energy-efficiency programs,”U.S. Senator Mark Udall said. “The U.S. House of Representatives' vote shows the growing, bipartisan momentum for not only my common-sense and cost-saving bill, but also strengthening our nation's energy efficiency.”
Cartwright has introduced 42 bills this Congress, including H.R. 4092 which is the first to pass out of the House under his name. Earlier this year, Cartwright’s bill that provided a 1 percent raise to hourly federal workers, including at the Tobyhanna Army Depot in Monroe County, was included in a broader spending bill.


It appears that the head of the Scranton Teacher’s Union, Rosemary Boland is following in the fine tradition of Teacher’s Union heads and being a sarcastic and smarmy bully. What an example for kids.
The “educator” made a comment about Board President Kathleen McGuigan saying she got “sand in her dentures” and because of that was taking it her actions at a meeting on other school board members.
Do you think that Teacher’s Union Presidents go to Longshoreman’s meetings to get their marching instructions?
There is a reason why regular rank and file taxpayers don’t like teachers, think they are doing a substandard job, are overpaid for what they do and have little or no respect like they received in the old days. Just take one look at their leadership.
Remember when the Wyoming Area chieftains picketed the late John Bolin’s business? It was a flower shop!!!!
I’m a Democrat, a union backer, have people in my family who are in a Teacher’s union, but keep up this playground behavior and you will have no friends left. Boland should be fired but her rank and file will not have the spine to do it.
