Use existing budget for energy efficiency upgrades in public buildings; result = energy & $ savings
Currently, all agencies have an Operations & Maintenance budget. We can line-item allocate some of the existing budget (to be determined on a case-by-case basis) to efficiency upgrades. This will create jobs (the people doing the upgrades) AND result in utility bill savings for the lifetime of the building.23 votes

Build more nuclear power plants
Idaho had the rst Atomic power plan for commercial use, why is Idaho preventing the building of many many more nuclear power plants. the state could build these and sell that power to other states and give our own state citizens a break on their power bills. We have the knowledge and manpower for this, why not get started.14 votes
