Kitzhaber Signs "Cool Schools" Legislation


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.
