Page 547, after line 45, insert:
"T. Beginning July 1, 2010, any public body entering the design phase for construction of a new building greater than 5,000 gross square feet in size, or renovating such a building where the cost of renovation exceeds 50 percent of the value of the building, shall build to LEED silver or Green Globes two globe standards, unless granted an exemption by the Director of the Department of General Services for construction by state agencies, institutions and authorities. Any exemption shall only be granted when LEED or Green Globes standards do not exist for the type of building being  constructed or due to special circumstances that make construction to such standards impractical. Such projects shall not be required to obtain official LEED or Green Globes certification."
