Ohio Sen. Joe Uecker (R-Loveland), who introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 25 in November to urge "state agencies to follow efficient building standards set by the American National Standards Institute [ANSI] instead of those from the U.S. Green Building Council [USGBC]," has asked the chairman of the House Manufacturing and Workforce Development Committee to "delay consideration of the bill until the fall," according to the Gongwer Ohio Report. SCR 25 aims to replace USGBC's Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) v4 standards in favor of ANSI because v4 "discourages use of safe building materials, such as certain paints and vinyls" (See our Feb 27, 2014, blog post for more information). The resolution passed the Senate 22-10, but now Sen. Uecker says he wants the House to wait until after summer break so that the industry witnesses and proponents of the bill are "able to testify in a jointed as opposed to a disjointed manner," the article said.
