U.S. House compromises on an energy bill that is not expected to become law

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

The bill expands the areas open to offshore oil drilling, cracks down on subsidies for big oil companies, and provides incentives for renewable fuels. But, it's an election-year energy bill and it's not expected to become law.
