On March 11, 2010, Senators on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee discussed Building STAR and Home Star in a hearing with Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Cathy Zoi, and representatives from state governments, consumer groups, contractors, and real estate advocacy groups.

Senator Jeff Merkley opened with a statement on Building STAR, emphasizing the job-creation benefits, especially to small businesses. “More than 90% of construction firms employ fewer than 20 people, and more than 60% of the manufacturers that create the materials and equipment for retrofits employ fewer than 20 people,” Senator Merkley noted.
