Rep. Keith Fitzgerald Statement Regarding Clean Energy and Weatherization Legislation

State Representative Keith Fitzgerald (D-Sarasota) today commended the introduction of clean energy and weatherization legislation by the House Energy & Utilities Policy Committee and Chairman Stephen Precourt. The legislation allows local governments to issue loans to property owners to finance energy efficiency and weatherization improvements for their properties.

“I am pleased to see that Chair Precourt and the Energy & Utilities Policy Committee have proposed legislation that will make it easier for homeowners and businesses to finance important energy efficiency and weatherization improvements for their properties,” said Representative Fitzgerald.

“The legislation provides an important opportunity to create jobs in Florida and will give property owners relief on their utility bills and insurance premiums,” Representative Fitzgerald added. “I have been following this issue closely for some time, and rather than file my own legislation, I am thrilled to help Chair Precourt advance this committee bill with bipartisan support.”
