Renewable Standard May Be Written Out of Energy Bill

Tenewable advocates who'd hoped that the pending federal energy legislation might include a renewable portolio standard (a policy that requires utilities to supply a certain percentage of power from renewable sources), may be disappointed, because thus far, Republicans drafting the energy bill have decided not to include these provisions - which were originally in the Senate version. Details on the fate of a federal RPS and the energy legislation is discussed further here in Renewable Energy Provision Stalls , Dan Morgan, Peter Behr, Washington Post (9/30/03).
