Jeanne Shaheen, Rob Portman have high hopes for energy efficiency bill

U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) has teamed up with a colleague to bring sensible energy policy to America.

From Politico:

Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Rob Portman are optimistic they can do what many in the energy community gave up on years ago: pass legislation.

The lawmakers will introduce a bipartisan bill Thursday to help increase energy efficiency that they say has a fighting chance of making it to the president’s desk.

Sen. Portman explains:

“As we see a divided Congress, it’s nice to see something that we can agree on. I think this bill is one of them. We’re optimistic that we can make progress in the Senate in the short run and get it through the House in the next year and then get it signed into law.”
