Nevada governor signs bill mandating energy-efficient building standards

All state-funded projects must now meet LEED-certified standards

Nevada Governor Kenny Guinn recently signed into law Assembly Bill 3, which requires all state-funded projects to meet LEED-certified standards or their equivalent. In addition, at least two occupied public buildings financed by the state must reach a LEED Silver certification or higher every two years.

The new law also requires that state universities and colleges provide education in the basics of green building.
