E-M:/ Nancy Pelosi's "off the table" approach

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi does for 
energy efficiency what she did for impeachment....

......new, more stringent motor vehicle fuel efficiency standards are "off the 
table" .......in House energy bill.  Meanwhile Democrats may shovel lots of 
cash to the nuclear industry in the form of massive subsidies.


WASHINGTON, Aug. 1 ­ The House of Representatives will open debate on a complex package of energy legislation on Friday, but strict new auto mileage standards will not be part of the discussion, Congressional leaders said Wednesday evening.

Speaker <http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/p/nancy_pelosi/index.html?inline=nyt-per>Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, decided not to allow a vote on an amendment requiring cars and light trucks sold in the United States to achieve a fleet average of 35 miles per gallon by 2019.
