This alert is no longer active: Oppose the anti-consumer, anti-environment energy bill! Write your Senator NOW!

The House-Senate energy bill conference committee has finalized the energy bill (H.R. 6, "The Energy Policy Act of 2005"), and the House has approved the final bill. Most of positive measures that were in the Senate bill, such as a renewable portfolio standard, have been taken out of the conference report.
This regressive bill repeals the vital consumer-protection law known as Public Utility Holding Company Act (PUHCA) and provides massive, unjustified subsidies to the the mature and lucrative nuclear and fossil fuel energy industries. Meanwhile, there are no substantive measures to move our country towards energy independence and sustainability.
Please write your senators and urge them to oppose this regressive legislation!
