Perlmutter Watch 5-29-09

My Congressman, Ed Perlmutter (D-CO), has re-introduced his “GREEN Act [which] provides incentives to lenders and financial institutions to provide lower interest loans and other benefits to consumers, who build, buy or remodel their homes and businesses to improve their energy efficiency and use of alternative energy” (“Perlmutter Re-Introduces Green Resources for Energy Efficient Neighborhoods (GREEN) Act for Affordable Mortgages“).

Under which of powers that the Constitution gives to Congress does this fall?  How much will it cost taxpayers?  Why do we need to improve energy efficiency when we have access to plenty of oil in the United States?

If individuals and organizations want to “improve their energy efficiency and use of alternative energy,” I have no objection–as long as they pay for it and the federal government isn’t involved.
