House Energy Panel Approves HOME STAR Rebates for Storm Windows in Historic Buildings

The House Energy and Commerce Committee marked up and approved the House version of the HOME STAR bill (HR 5019) on April 15th which includes a storm window replacement rebate for historic buildings.

The Committee approved the bill on a 30-17 vote but rejected an amendment by the committee’ ranking member, Joe Barton (R-TX), which would have cut the program’ $6 billion budget to $3 billion. Barton said Republicans would continue to oppose the bill as it moves through the House on the cost issue.

The storm windows rebate for historic properties —which is capped at $1,000 —provides for the inclusion of labor and material costs and provides a rebate ($50 each) for installation of a minimum of five windows and a maximum of 12 which “omply with any procedures that the Secretary may set for storm windows and their installation.”

The Senate Finance Committee is expected to hold a hearing on the Senate companion HOME STAR bill (S. 3177) later this month.
