Capitol 2

H.R.4974: Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017
This bill includes language calling on the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to conduct mechanical insulation assessments at numerous VA facilities and report back to Congress. We are happy to report that thanks to NIA’s efforts, the bill was passed in the House of Representatives on May 19, 2016 and by the Senate earlier this month.

H.R.8 North American Energy Security & Infrastructure Act
This energy bill includes a section requiring the Department of Energy (DOE) to conduct a study on the impact mechanical insulation has on energy and water savings in federal buildings. NIA’s hard work to pass this bill paid off and the House of Representatives approved this bill on December 3, 2015!

S.2012 Energy Policy Modernization Act
NIA achieved a tremendous victory when Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and Senator Maria Cantwell, (D-WA), the Committee’s Ranking Member, sent a bipartisan letter to the DOE Secretary, Ernest Moniz, requesting a study on the impact of thermal insulation on water and energy use within federal buildings and facilities. Since the Senators have already requested the DOE to conduct this study, the Senate version of the energy bill does not include our language requiring the DOE to conduct this study. NIA is working with our legislative allies to ensure the final compromise version of this bill does include our language.
