* Provide tax incentives for businesses and families that purchase more fuel efficient vehicles, as proposed in H.R. 1618 and H.R. 765 by Reps. Dave Camp (R-MI) and Jerry Weller (R-IL);

Wouldn't that be a function of business to design, build and market the effiecent cars? Automakers have been resistant for years to higher fuel standards, as the claim is that the cost is too high.

"Provide tax incentives for businesses and homeowners who improve their energy efficiency, as proposed in H.R. 5984 by Reps. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD), Phil English (R-PA), and Zach Wamp (R-TN), and in H.R. 778 by Rep. Jerry Weller (R-IL)."

Tax incentives? As in tax breaks that some day will have to be paid for, by us.

"To increase the supply American-made energy in environmentally sound ways, the legislation will:"

"Eliminate barriers to the expansion of emission-free nuclear power production, as proposed in H.R. 6384 by Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT)."

Those barriers are in place too.......protect the environment and us, from nuclear waste and no repeats of Chernobyl and Three Mile Island?

Nothing in the proposed legislation about, U.S. citizens being encouraged to use less, oil, gas and electric.
