On Thursday, Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) introduced an updated version of the energy efficiency bill. The Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act is designed to cut energy waste in buildings, industry, and the federal government while saving billions of taxpayer dollars, creating tens of thousands of jobs, and cutting carbon pollution.

According to the sponsors, the newest version is estimated to create as many as 190,000 jobs, saving $16 billion annually and avoiding emissions equivalent to taking 22 million cars off the road.
