Urge State Lawmakers to Protect Funding for Lead By Example

The Governor's budget includes $60 million in the bond package for "Energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in state-owned buildings".  This funding will support the Lead by Example program (more info here).

Send an email to leaders of the Finance Revenue and Bonding Committee with the message printed below.

Subject: Protect Bonding for Green Jobs in Renovating State Buildings

Dear ____

Upgrading state facilities presents a "win-win-win" opportunity to foster in-state job creation and economic development while reducing the state's substantial energy costs and helping to meet our climate goals.

Please ensure that the $60 million annual allocation included in the Governor's bond package for "Energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in state-owned buildings" remains in the budget.

Thank you for supporting CT's move toward a clean energy economy.

Sincerely,

[include your name and town]
