Austin Chamber Has New Green Jobs Plan

The Chamber of Commerce of City of Austin Texas has developed a green jobs plan.
The Austin Business Journal reports:

"The report is the first from the Chamber's Green Job Task Force, which launched in January 2009 to coordinate a community-wide approach to green job education and training. The task force's goal is to help facilitate the training and retraining of up to 25,000 workers in Central Texas for green jobs, namely those in the energy efficiency or renewable energy arenas. If those 25,000 jobs do materialize, they alone would likely account for an annual payroll of $1.5 billion, according to projections." See full article:
