House Approves Bill to Ensure Reliable, Affordable Energy

Washington--The House on Thursday passed the Electricity Security and Affordability Act (H.R. 3826), which would provide a more reasonable path forward than EPA's pending greenhouse gas regulations while also protecting U.S. jobs, economic growth and international competitiveness, according to the Partnership for a Better Energy Future, of which the American Farm Bureau Federation is a member. 

The bill addresses some of farmers' and ranchers' concerns about a number of new GHG regulations directed at the electric power sector.  By law, these regulations are supposed to be flexible and take into account cost and commercial availability.  In practice, however, EPA's proposed rules have been the exact opposite.
