Energy Bill Update

Bill Scher

During the past few days, there have been some positive developments as the House continues to put together its energy bill.

While Senate conservatives previously blocked consideration of increased renewable electricity, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is working to build enough support to include it in the House version.

The provision would require utilities to produce 20% of their electricity with renewable energy by 2020. Without being part of the House version, there’s no chance it can part of the final legislation.
