Congress' Energy Plan: What Will it Mean for Ohio?

January 15, 2007

As part of the "Hundred Hours" push by Democratic leaders, Congress will vote this week on a plan to cut $10 billion in oil company tax breaks, and use the money to promote renewable sources. Stan Spofforth with Clean Fuels Ohio says the proposal would be a job creator for the state, because Ohio is poised to be a leader in alternative energy sources like bio-fuels and wind turbine production.

"Shifting incentives away from oil and towards alternatives makes a lot of sense for our economy and our environment in Ohio."

Chelsea Maxwell with the National Wildlife Federation says the bill is an important first step in cutting global warming gasses from fossil fuels and easing America's reliance on imported oil.

"It would really lead to both national security and climate security in that we would be taking that first step in combating global warming."

The bill's authors say it would trim about $10 billion in oil industry tax cuts passed by the previous Congress. Part of the money would be used to promote conservation and alternative energy sources.
