Proposed DOE Cuts Would Eliminate Single-Pane Retrofit Program

The 2018 budget proposal released this week by President Trump seeks $1.7 billion in cuts for the Department of Energy (DOE) — about 5.6 percent of its current funding. To achieve those reductions, the spending plan would eliminate several agencies, including the Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), which runs a program aimed at improving the energy efficiency of existing single-pane windows.

Shaheen-Portman Energy Bill Back Before Congress

DWM Magazine reports that the Shaheen-Portman Energy Bill, which is supported by industry and is also known as the Energy Savings and Industrial Competitiveness Act, is back before Congress again.  “This is exactly the kind of legislation Americans want Congress to pass – bipartisan, common-sense policy that saves taxpayers money and drives economic activity and job creation,” said Kateri Callahan, president of the Alliance to Save Energy. “There are nearly 2.2 million energy-efficiency jobs across the country – in manufacturing, installation, construction, engineering and other sectors. We added 130,000 efficiency jobs last year alone, and the policies in this legislation will only boost those numbers moving forward. This bill should have passed five years ago, so I urge leaders in both parties to put an end to the gridlock and finally move it across the finish line.”

Employer Alert: Use the New I-9 Form

Because it wants to reduce errors and make it easier to complete the forms on a computer, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, and all employers are now required to use it.

Among the changes in the new version, Section 1 asks for “other last names used” rather than “other names used,” and streamlines certification for certain foreign nationals.

All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States, both citizens and noncitizens. Both employees and employers (or authorized representatives of the employer) must complete the form. And while the changes make it easier to fill out online, there is also a printable version available.
