Energy Policy Act of 2005: Good or Bad For Blacks?

Is the energy bill currently being considered by Congress good or bad for blacks? The bill is available at http://energycommerce.house.gov/108/energy_pdf.htm What do you think? Which provisions hurt or help the African American community?

Although Congressman Al Hastings' environmental justice amendment failed, Congressman Al Wynn and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee have amendments that were accepted as part of the bill. See http://groups.msn.com/AAEA/legislation1.msnw Senator Barack Obama has also authored legislation that could be included in the bill: http://groups.msn.com/AAEA/legislation.msnw

What would you like to see in our national energy policy?
