Sanders Amendment to the Supplemental Approved

We have just learned that the supplemental amendment offered by Senator Sanders (I-VT) asking DOE to restore cuts in the WAP has been approved by the Senate in the amount of $25 million, potentially bringing WAP funding for FY07 to $229.5 million.

The amendment was part of the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill, which will now face joint conference and then Presidential approval. We will keep you posted as new developments arise.

We are truly grateful to Senators Sanders, Reed, Bingaman, Sununu, Clinton, Menendez, Wyden, Dodd and Harkin for their recognition and support of this successful program which had countless benefits for both the enviroment and community. With champions such as these, we can rest assured the Program will survive these tumultuous times.
