The first priority for the legislature must be to address our stagnant economy. A green jobs and green loan program will put people back to work insulating old buildings, retrofitting homes and schools with solar panels, and developing new industries for fuel cells, photovoltaics, wind turbines, biofuels, LED lighting, better batteries, and other clean energy technologies. As more people go back to work and earn a living wage, their spending will stimulate business and restore the state economy.
