TPA Celebrates Festivus!
12/18/2014 at 02:48 pm - David Williams and Michi Iljazi


It’s the holiday season and while folks will be celebrating different holidays nationwide there is one holiday that unites all of us: FESTIVUS! Many are familiar with the Seinfeld-inspired holiday that took aim at conventional traditions of gift giving and was basically an alternative to the days of joy in December with the focus being much more critical of those you’re closest with in life. The Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) wants to mark Festivus with a holiday message for the President and Congress, so please enjoy!

In an erratic defense of the cost versus effectiveness of USGBC's LEED green building certification system (see the USA Today investigative series), USGBC's Rick Fedrizzi shouts that this is a "social movement" and "we are right" at their annual Green Build conference in San Francisco. Taxpayers will say "you are wrong" as they learn more about the costs.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance is launching an investigation into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. On January 17, 2013, TPA submitted three Freedom of Information Act requests trying to find out what collaboration took place between the General Services Administration and the U.S. Green Building Council when LEED was adopted. While more efficient and sustainable buildings are a laudable goal and can reduce energy consumption and energy costs for taxpayers, achieving that end through de-facto government monopolies is not the right approach.
