Democrats Play Catch-Up On Energy Pork Bill

Speaker Jody Richards just started off today's House A&R meeting by stating his position that we don't need a special session.

I agree with him.

Update: Dr. Jim Bartis of the Rand Institute said if we do this we should also build a carbon sequestration facility because that will be necessary to attract potential federal subsidies in the future.

This is a reason not to do it.

Bill Caylor of the Kentucky Coal Association said he was in favor of anything that involved mining more coal but that the energy pork would have no impact on gasoline prices.
