Democrat Stacey Abrams would seek to train more advanced energy workers, overhaul building codes and permitting standards to encourage more efficiency and create a Georgia “green bank” to offer incentives for environmentally-friendly construction if she’s elected governor.

The former Georgia House Democratic leader said Tuesday her proposal would create between 25,000 to 40,000 new jobs and would save taxpayer dollars by increasing energy efficiency.  Her aim, she said, is to “ensure no Georgian has to work more than one full time job to make ends meet.”
