Topeka Army officials will be on hand Friday for a ceremonial bill signing of a measure sponsored by state Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, which would help military installations tap into energy conservation programs.
Sloan said HB 2169 was the result of meetings he had with commanders at Fort Riley and Army energy staff in Washington, D.C.
The bill would allow federal agencies located in Kansas to enter into financing agreements with the Kansas Development Finance Authority, which could issue revenue bonds to pay for energy conservation measures.
The state would not be responsible to pay off the bonds.
Sebelius signed the bill into law last week but will have a ceremonial signing at 8:30 a.m. Friday.
