Green Jobs

Here's a story from MyNorthwest.com about a proposed new law that could help some people out in the fine state of Washington and help out the environment as well.

Majority Democrats in the state Senate unveiled a package of proposed laws on Tuesday that they say will boost the state's energy efficiency while creating thousands of "green jobs."

It's the latest of several legislative proposals that would use state spending to boost construction and other projects, with the hope of injecting some life into the moribund economy.

While some of the regulations they're enforcing are strict, it would definitely create a lot of opportunities for people in the sluggish construction economy. And really that's what we need at the moment.

Work to make our world more efficient while making jobs, can you ask for much more?
