ENERGY PLAN
(2008-07-25)
(wgvu) - Action on wide-ranging energy legislation
is being held up because lawmakers don't agree over details such as
making customers pay for more green power.
The state Senate sent the energy bills to a conference committee
yesterday, a day after the House took similar action.
A big sticking point is a requirement that a certain percentage
of Michigan's power come from renewable sources. The Democratic-led
House wants a higher requirement than the Republican-led Senate.
The package also would limit competition for electric customers
so big utilities could better afford to build new, coal-fired power
plants.
