Energy Efficiency Bill ‘Derailed’, with Keystone & Climate Driving Debate

Posted May 13, 2014 at 5:05am

The New York Times reports that “a bipartisan bill to encourage energy efficiency in buildings died in the Senate on Monday, derailed by the contentious debate over the Keystone XL pipeline and President Obama’s plans to issue new climate change regulations.”  

“The bill’s end came as the Senate voted 55 to 36 on a procedural motion, falling five votes short of the 60 required to bring the bill to a final vote.”
