From today’s Wall Street Journal, Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) commenting on the provisions requiring utilities to produce 15 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by the year 2020.
Sen. Pete Domenici (R., N.M.) said the electricity provision, which utilities say will raise electricity rates, “will make this bill untenable for many in the Senate.”
But Senator Pete V. Domenici of New Mexico, a leading Republican voice on energy policy, took exception to the proposal, accusing Democrats of striking a deal among themselves and including an objectionable provision to require utilities to use a set amount of renewable fuels.
“That is no way to pass legislation and is another in a long list of reasons why Congress has lost the faith and trust of the American people,” said Mr. Domenici, the senior Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
