Senate Democrats unveil energy bill to move by recess
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democrats officially unveiled on Tuesday energy legislation to implement offshore drilling reforms and promote natural gas-powered vehicles that Democrats want the Senate to pass before lawmakers leave for their summer break next week.
The legislation, which will delay until September at the earliest a more contentious proposal to cap and then slowly cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, would also promote energy savings measures for homes and provide funds for water and land conservation.
