Senate Democrats outline energy package – Oil Country Hot Line – Brief Article
Last month, Senate Democrats framed a bill that prepares the way for a battle this year over Arctic drilling. The measure requires greater use of renewable energy, including corn-based ethanol, and subsidies to push construction of a natural gas pipeline in Alaska. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (Democrat-South Dakota) said some Democratic senators feel very strongly that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge must remain protected, but he urged Republicans not to hold all energy policy hostage over the issue.
