Unanimously for SB 152, the Green Jobs Initiative"This bill is the first in a series of legislative solutions to create jobs

and help our economy recover as soon as possible," Horsford said. "We must

do what we can to establish Nevada as the nation's leader in renewable

energy. By investing in a green economy, we will diversify Nevada's

economic base, create new career opportunities, and help consumers reduce

energy costs that will help them better make ends meet in these difficult

times.""By investing in the Green Jobs Initiative, we can create jobs, save

energy, and save our citizens' money, both in terms of their lower home

energy bills, and in terms of the lower cost of each school and state

building, which are among of the most wasteful buildings in our state,"

said Senator Mike Schneider, chair of Senate Energy, Infrastructure, and

Transportation.For the very latest green energy jobs please click here
