Apr 25, 2006- President Bush's Plan to Halt Deposits to the Nation's Strategic Petroleum Reserve
"I invite the endorsement of these bills by the Bush Administration, but I won't hold my breath. Remember that the oil executives who recently testified before the Senate committee scoffed at the idea of price collusion. Also keep in mind, that the Bush budget once again cuts the USDA budget in support of biofuels production by $78 million this year, after proposing similar cuts in each of the past three years. Action speaks louder than words."
Legislation introduced by Rep. Kaptur in the House that encourage and support the use of alternative fuels:
To expand the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to include alternative fuels, and for other purposes.
To amend the Clean Air Act to require that, after the year 2010, all gasoline sold in the United States for motor vehicles contain not less than 10 percent ethanol and that all diesel.
- H.R. 388
Biofuels Energy Independence Act of 2005.
