Afterall, they’re the ones that gave us the statutory chages that made it possible:

2005 Transmission Omnibus Bill from Hell

You know, those statutory changes that GRE’s Will Kaul brags about:

William Kaul – Testimony before Committee on Energy and Natural Resources Hearing- June 17, 2008

Here’s the House Energy Committee, I was fortunate to get the list just 12 minutes after they passed it.  Let them know what you think of the 2005 transmission changes, and what you think of CapX 2020:

  1. I haven’t looked at this bill in a while — there’s a ton of great stuff in there. No wonder it passed 62-0 in the Senate, 131-2 in the House. 🙂

  2. Sigh… compare the terms of that bill with the material terms that your employer, Izaak Walton League, and others, agreed to in the 2003 deal.
    And then there’s George and Bill going to caucus and saying, “It’s a deal, a package deal, and it’s a good deal.” And then there’s C-BED… makes me want to puke 8o|
    But it’s that time of year, look out, we’re off to the races!
