Senate Passes Energy Bill To Help Cut Petroleum Use

The senate has passed an amendment presented by Indiana Senator Evan Bayh.

The energy bill would require President Bush to establish policies that cut petroleum use by 10-million barrels a day by 2031.

The bill would also raise auto fuel economy standards for the first time in nearly 20 years and make oil industry price gouging a federal crime.

Bayh's amendment was to reinforce lawmakers' concerns about reliance on imported oil.
