Light Bulb Moment for Democrats – Administration is Even Delaying Renewable Projects on Federal Lands


WASHINGTON, D.C., March 25, 2010 - At today’s Energy and Mineral Resources subcommittee hearing on the President’s budget proposals, Rep. Heinrich (D-NM) questioned the BLM Director about new solar projects - only to find out that there are none.  In fact, the Department of Interior has failed to issue a single permit for any commercial renewable energy project.

After 15 months with solar projects on the “fast track” maybe he should ask the Bureau to explain how long the “slow track” will take?”
