Thanks to the stimulus bill championed by President Obama, the state of Missouri has millions of dollars available to complete home weatherization projects for low and moderate income homeowners. The program provides three distinct benefits: jobs for construction workers, lower utility bills for homeowners, and cleaner air for everybody.

On this episode of Laborvision, host John Hickey discusses the impact of home weatherization projects with Ron Tierney of the Carpenters Union apprenticeship program, Jim Buford, CEO of the Urban League of St. Louis, and Karen Massey of the Department of Natural Resources and the statewide coordinator for the home weatherization program.
