Delegate Fleischauer was the lead sponsor of HB 4028, which passed in 2008. This legislation authorized counties and municipalities to enter into contracts over a period of several years for the purpose of saving energy costs. Allowing this particular type of longer term contract has resulted in millions of dollars in savings to local governments, which have changed lighting, increased insulation, etc. The Governor's Renewable and Alternative Energy Act, passed in 2009, set targets for reducing energy usage and lowering emissions. It mirrored provisions that had been introduced by Delegate Fleischauer for several preceding years (HB 2980).
