Legislative Dummy: Molepske

There's some creature named "Molepske" that got elected to the AssDems

He has a "green" building-bill up.

Molepske’s bill would require new public buildings or building additions of at least 10,000 gross square feet achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver certification.

The U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED certification involves an independent third-party review of a building’s design, construction and performance in terms of energy and water efficiency, material and resource use, sustainable site development and indoor air quality.

The bill extends LEED silver requirements to state government, local government and public school district projects.

School administrators and local officials are NOT happy with this, as you might imagine.

But the point was to demonstrate how utterly stupid Creature Molepske actually is.

State Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, a member of the state Building Commission and Assembly Committee on Jobs, the Economy and Small Business, said he’s not ready to vote for Molepske’s bill.

“I have real mixed feelings about telling local governments and school districts what they have to do,” Hintz said Thursday. “The big argument for the bill yesterday was, ‘Well it just makes sense.’

“Well, if it just makes sense, then these groups can make the decisions on their own.”

Creature Molepske's retort?

“We can get the information of what we’re spending on utilities on our buildings, but if that’s $125 million every year, why can’t it be $100 million?”

Dumbest-ass remark this year.

Let's start with your house, Molepske. Save the planet, one Leggie-family at a time.
