Chief Administrative Officer Dan Beard unveiled his Green the Capitol final report to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D,CA) on June 21, 2007. The final report includes all of ASLA’s recommendations for sustainable practices for site conditions for the U.S. Capitol, the House Office Buildings, and the Capitol grounds. ASLA recommended sustainable practices for stormwater management, water efficiency, biodiversity, expanding tree canopy coverage, and maintenance practices. In December 2007, a six-month Green the Capitol report card was released, illustrating the quick start for lasting changes to make U.S. Capitol Complex more sustainable. ASLA and its recommendations in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Green the Capitol Initiative were discussed during debate on the floor of the House of Representatives in June 2007. During debate of the Legislative Branch Appropriations bill, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-CA) attempted to offer two amendments based on ASLA’s recommendations for creating green roofs on the House Office Buildings and for using tree canopy coverage in the House parking lots.Click here to view the video.
