What others say: House's energy bill makes a lot of sense

Posted: Monday, April 25, 2005

The energy bill passed Thursday by the U.S. House of Representatives included a few common-sense provisions that deserve to become law.

Daylight-saving time would be expanded by two months. It currently starts on the first Sunday in April and ends on the last Sunday of October. Under this bill, it would start on the first Sunday in March and end on the last Sunday in November. Supporters told The Associated Press it would save the equivalent of 100,000 barrels of oil a day.

Also, the bill would provide a tax credit of 20 percent up to $2,000 for homeowners who install more efficient windows, doors and improved insulation. Consumers can use the help toward lower bills and energy independence.
