    Sec. 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds that an efficient green building plan is essential to:
        (1) reduce the increasing costs of energy for
public buildings and reduce the State's overall energy usage;
        (2) preserve the environment and make State
buildings better for those who work and study in them, as well as the area around them; and
        (3) cut pollution, moderate peak energy demand,
better assure the reliability of energy studies, and stabilize energy costs.
