Proposed 2003 Federal Energy Legislation

U. S. Senate Energy  & Resources Committee Website

U. S. House Energy & Commerce Committee Website

The United States Joint House/Senate Energy Conference Committee has released the slimmed down version of S2095, the Senate Energy Bill.  This is the most recent draft Federal energy legislation that must be passed on to the U.S. House by the Senate for a final vote.  

Currently, the tax provisions of this bill have been attached to separate legislation in an attempt to pass those provisions into law.  The authorizing sections of S2095 have also been attached to separate legislation in a similar attempt to pass those provisions into law.

The updated/slimmed down version of S2095 is available for review below, as well as recent press releases by the Senate Energy Committee that better explain current strategies to pass this energy legislation into law.
