The North Carolina House will consider legislation that would prevent the use of LEED certification for public projects. The legislation would bar the use of eco-rating systems that disadvantage North Carolina businesses, and it would require the use of two timber-certification standards that have been excluded from LEED. "It's not calling LEED by name. But it's anti-LEED," says Emily Scofield of the U.S. Green Building Council's North Carolina chapter.
