WASHINGTON, DC - Dec. 06: House Energy ranking member Joe L. Barton, R-Texas, and Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., before a news conference on the energy bill. The House brushed aside a new White House veto threat against comprehensive energy legislation, passing the bill Thursday and sending it to an uncertain fate in the Senate. The White House renewed a threat to veto the bill over tax provisions and a renewable electricity mandate. The measure (HR 6) would boost corporate average fuel economy standards, require billions of gallons of ethanol and other biofuels to be blended into gasoline, and mandate that 15 percent of electricity by 2020 come from renewable sources.
