Why Only OBO? How Other Bureaus Can Share The Cost

OBO continues to be tasked with construction projects for missions abroad. However, with the advent of greening embassies, OBO funds are stretched further to meet this increasing demand. And yet it is other bureaus which reap the benefit of cost savings initiatives from OBO-funded projects.

When will congressional law be changed to allow the funding gained by these savings intiatives be brought back into OBO to further the goals set forth by President Obama? It is not in the best interest of the entire Department of State to demonstrate the outward manifestation of American ideals through the shared responsibility of all bureaus to reduce our carbon footprint worldwide?
