Subsidy battle reignites as debt deal preserves tax breaks

As Democrats' battle to cut oil-industry tax breaks as part of a debt deal ends in defeat today, environmentalists are charging GOP lawmakers with skewing a closely watched energy-subsidy study in order to inflate federal renewable supports relative to those for fossil fuels. The political jousting over the Energy Information Administration's recently completed study of government benefits to oil, coal, natural gas, nuclear and renewables suggests that the hours-old deal to raise the debt ceiling -- which does not yet touch taxes -- is likely to reboot the springtime clash over energy subsidies in the latter half of this year.
