Efficiency is a key goal for any for any federal agency, or at the very least it should be.  When there is a deficiency in efficiency, serious questions need to be asked, and tough choices need to be made. The United States Postal Service (USPS) is no exception, and it’s long overdue for a serious review and possible overhaul as the USPS keeps losing money. The USPS recently posted their quarterly losses, and it wasn’t pretty, as the Wall Street Journal reported last month. One of the biggest hurdles for USPS in getting the budget out of the red is the cost of health care. Congress has required USPS to pre fund their health care for 75 years in only 10 years.  This means billions of dollars are needed each year to fund retiree benefits.

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.
