Energy Future Coalition's Detchon discusses energy provisions in House recovery plan
As Congress' $825 billion economic recovery plan heads to the House floor this week, many Republicans are questioning the tight deadline for passage of the stimulus. During today's OnPoint, Reid Detchon, executive director of the Energy Future Coalition and executive director of the climate and energy program at the U.N. Foundation, previews this week's House floor debate and discusses the key energy measures included in the plan. He addresses whether picking energy "winners and losers" in the stimulus could cause market issues in the future. Detchon also explains how the stimulus could set the tone for other legislative goals this year.
