CBC & the Energy Policy Act of 2005

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 was supported by 43% of the Congressional Black Caucus, including Senator Barack Obama. The CBC voted 17 Yeas to 22 Nays, while the entire House of Representatives approved the bill on a vote of 275 Yeas to 156 Nays. The Senate voted 74 to 26 in approving the bill. AAEA has been working to get an energy passed for the past four years. (CBC Chair Melvin Watt, left, Senator Obama, right)
