Congress is nearing enactment of multi-billion dollar economic stimulus legislation. House and Senate proposals both commit billions in spending and tax incentives to renewable energy, expansion of the transmission grid, and efficiency. This PDF document, prepared by Sonnenschein's energy policy professionals, compares and contrasts the key energy provisions of H.R. 1, stimulus legislation approved by the House Wednesday night, and S. 1, the Senate stimulus bill headed for a floor vote in the coming days. Many provisions are similar, but there are important differences between the bills that will need to be reconciled.
The terms of the bills will be changing as the legislative process continues. We anticipate updating this document as new information emerges.
