Arroyo’s bill on Green Building technologies gets final House approval
A bill principally authored by Pampanga 2nd District Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for education and training on advanced energy and green building technologies has been passed by the House of Representatives and transmitted to the Senate, a statement from the lower chamber of Congress said Saturday.
House Bill No. 8912, titled, “An Act Authorizing Higher Education Curriculum Development and Graduate Training in Advanced Energy and Green Building Technologies,” was approved by the House of Representatives on Feb. 4, and subsequently transmitted to the Senate on Feb. 6.
The House statement said it garnered 172 votes from congressmen on Final Reading.
“The bill would help in preparing the next wave of design and construction professionals to improve the energy efficiency and productivity of our nation’s buildings,” the statement quoted Arroyo to have said.
Under the proposed legislation, the Commission on Higher Education will consult with the Department of Energy and CHED-recognized higher education institutions to develop a curriculum in advanced energy and green building technologies at the undergraduate and graduate levels, focusing on design resilience, natural resource conservation, and sustainable design and building practices, among others.(END)
