What will it take to create a standard efficiency license that will encompass all of the building envelope?

I run a small company in Bullhead City, Arizona. We have the most severe heat in the country. The single energy co-op here has the city Government tied up. Our county will be the fastest growing renewable energy area  the world. But we MUST "button up" our homes and businesses first! It's cheaper to conserve energy, than it is to create it. Who will help endorse a national bill for energy efficiency?
