One of my favorite items in the Sunday Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is the Congress Following the Vote feature. There is always a short description of major bills voted on in Congress the previous week with a breakdown on how the Wisconsin contingent voted…PART TWO!
This past week the US Senate passed a bi-partisan bill 79 to 20. According to today’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Bill S 2262 is a bi-partisan bill to promote US energy efficiency in residential, commercial and industrial sectors and throughout the federal government, the nation’s largest energy consumer. A YES vote counts on VOLUNTARY compliance, not federal mandates to reach its goals.
Did I mention this bill is bi-partisan and was passed 79 to 20 and is VOLUNTARY?
AND one of the 20 votes on the losing side was Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson. Once more our ‘senior’ senator proves that he doesn’t have a clue!
