Supporters of efficiency measure fear amendment backed by chemicals group could be fatal 'Trojan horse'

A long-simmering feud between the chemical industry and a leading green building certifier could boil over next month when the Senate is expected to debate a marquee energy efficiency bill. The U.S. Green Building Council is ramping up efforts to defend its landmark Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification from an amendment it expects to be offered to the pending efficiency bill from Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio). USGBC sources say they fear the amendment would effectively bar the General Services Administration from continuing to use LEED to measure the efficiency and sustainability of federal buildings.
