Voice: Hoping and praying for ‘no' vote on Cheney energy plan

July 28, 2001

Next week Congress is likely to vote on the Cheney energy plan. The House energy bill is chock full of money for major polluters like the oil, coal and nuclear industries, yet fails to significantly increase the investments we need most — in energy efficiency and clean, renewable energy sources.

Although this is no surprise, given Cheney's and Bush's oil industry backgrounds, we must demand better from our local representative, Duncan Hunter.

I for one will be watching and praying for a "no" vote, for the sake of our families' health and our pocketbooks.
