Energy Savings Bill Fails Amid Election Politics

May 12, 2014, 6:14 PM

Energy Savings Bill Fails Amid Election Politics
WASHINGTON -

A widely popular, bipartisan energy savings bill has fallen victim in the Senate to election-year politics and the Obama administration's continued indecision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

A procedural motion to limit debate and send the measure to the Senate floor without amendments fell five votes short Monday of the 60 votes needed for approval.

The legislation would tighten efficiency guidelines for new federal buildings and provide tax incentives to make homes and commercial buildings more efficient. It easily cleared a procedural hurdle last week but stalled after Republican demand for votes on the Canada-to-Texas pipeline and on new administration-proposed greenhouse gas limits for coal-burning power plants.

Republicans are united in favor of the pipeline and against the new power plant regulations, while Democrats are deeply divided on both.
