Governor John Kitzhaber has completed one of his campaign promises.  He's signed the "Cool Schools" legislation. The program puts people back to work by making school buildings more energy-efficient. It helps districts pay for new energy efficient upgrades. It adds jobs and helps Oregon businesses. The bill sets up a clean-energy deployment fund, using existing sources, from which school districts can get grants and loans for weatherization and other energy-efficiency projects. Kitzhaber says 15 jobs are needed for every $1-million in upgrades. 43 schools are already signed up for the program.
