It describes a process by which agency goals will be set and reported to the President by the Chair of CEQ.

>     * 30% reduction in vehicle fleet petroleum use by 2020;

>     * Implementation of the 2030 net-zero-energy building requirement;
>     * Implementation of the stormwater provisions of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, section 438; and
