The Bush Administration has already issued a letter indicating that the president will veto a bill that rolls back tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, so all eyes are now on the Senate, to see whether the Finance Committee can find less objectionable sources of revenue.

We strongly support this Renewable Energy Legislation and trust that the Senate sends the Bill to the President with strong bi-partisan support as it is vital to our Nation’s Energy Security, National Security, and Energy Independence.
