A LEED White House?

Word is appearing on many of the LEED/green newsletters that there is going to be an effort to obtain LEED certification for the White House. It seems obvious this will be sought under LEED for Existing [Green] Buildings: Operations & Maintenance. Elements include "computerized energy management systems, automatic light sensors that turn off in unoccupied rooms and low-flow water valves," as well as aspects of ongoing materials usage.

This would be a very interesting project to watch!
