House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: March 1, 2021 03:52 PM
From: Representative Christopher B. Quinn
To: All House members
Subject: Green State Buildings Requirement (Former HB183)
In the near future, I plan to reintroduce legislation that would require the design, construction, and renovation of state-owned or leased buildings to comply with specified and high-performance building standards. This legislation would establish the High-Performance, State Buildings Standards Act as a freestanding act. It would not require a specific certification but merely encourage green buildings.

When we build a new government building in the Commonwealth, we expect it to serve present and future generations. These are not buildings with a short life span and should be designed for long term efficiency and performance. Energy costs must be a part of this equation, not only for the long term success of the project but also for the part that the Commonwealth must play in our country’s energy independence.

Please consider cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1246
