Energy-efficiency building code changes pass Delaware Senate
New buildings in Delaware would have to be more energy-efficient under legislation that cleared the Senate.
As highlighted in a story in The Delaware Business Ledger ,
Under Senate Bill 59, building codes would have to be updated to reflect the
latest in energy-efficient building standards, a move which Sen. Harris B.
McDowell III, D-Wilmington North, said would pay dividends for the state in
more ways than one. The bill cleared the Senate on a 19-2 vote and now heads to
the House for action. (From Senate Majority Caucus)]

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
