House Passes Cash For Caulkers Program
The House passed 246-161 the $6 billion Home Star rebate program known as "Cash for Caulkers," which will create jobs and potentially save homeowners billions of dollars over the next decade by providing tax incentives to become more energy efficient. Homeowners would qualify for rebates from $1,500 to $3,000 per home for retrofits. Similar legislation is pending in the Senate and President Obama supports the program.
