A multimillion dollar dam in Kake would make it easier to bring renewable energy to the village. But the definition of “renewable” isn’t the same in everyone’s book.
The office of House Speaker Paul Ryan announced Wednesday there was no time left to pass an energy bill, according to the publication The Hill.
Time is running out on one of Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s top priorities: a far-reaching energy bill. Murkowski had hoped the legislation would serve as her crowning achievement after two years as chairman of the Senate Energy Committee.
Murkowski and Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington all but pleaded with the other senators not to stuff the bill with features that might become poison pills.
