Energy decisions

Utahns have always held economy in high revere. We have always known that productive economy is a product of efficiency, so why should the manner in which we build our homes and offices be any different? When a government agency has an opportunity to put money back in the pockets of homeowners and taxpayers while helping clean the air for our families, there is no reason to continue constructing under antiquated building codes.

David Brems’ and Kevin Emerson’s recent op-ed (“Utah needs new energy codes,” June 7) elaborates perfectly on why the Uniform Building Code Commission should heed the expert advice of Gov. Herbert’s Clean Air Action Team. The right decision will pay economic and health dividends for families for generations to come.
