Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak( D,I-Cheektowaga) announced that the Assembly expects to take up the “Green Jobs, Green Homes” legislation. This initiative is designed to direct federal grants and private investment to communities and residential homes to help revitalize the economy in an energy-independent and responsible way (A8901).
“This program will have two main objectives, first; it will help revitalize the local economy by injecting much needed money into our local communities and second it will direct this money to innovative environmental technology which will make our homes and businesses more energy efficient,” said Assemblyman Gabryszak.
Assemblyman Gabryszak went on to say; “This program is designed to be a comprehensive energy initiative, it will reward communities that make the switch to more efficient methods to heat, cool and light their homes and businesses. Likewise this program will aid the local economy by using local businesses to carryout the work of making our communities more energy efficient.”
Assemblyman Gabryszak concluded; “I am proud to have sponsored this legislation, the green economy is the path to economic revitalization in Western New York, together we can make our communities better through looking forward toward innovative, environmentally friendly technology.
