2015 House Bill 4994: Expand local government “energy efficiency” financing schemes

Public Act 123 of 2016

Introduced by Rep. Al Pscholka (R) on October 15, 2015 To expand the things counties can spend money on under a scheme that lets them contract with vendors for energy efficiency projects on their facilities and pay for these with money the projects are supposed to save (or from regular tax revenue if savings don’t appear). The bill would allow vendor installment contract durations of up to 20 years, allow locals enter to spend on information technology and utility projects they assert are related to the energy saving scheme, expand the types of deals they can make with vendors to include “lease-purchase” agreements.   Official Text and Analysis.
