Senate Provides $1 Million Funding for EnerDel to Develop Hybrid Bus Battery Technology in Omnibus Bill

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL | Posted on December 22nd, 2007

This project was included by the Senate and House Appropriations Committee at the request of U.S. Senator Dick Lugar. Senator Lugar worked with members of the Indiana congressional delegation to maintain funding throughout the budget process. The legislation heads to a vote in the House of Representatives. If approved, the bill will be sent to the President for his signature.

On December 18, 2007, Senator Lugar was a keynote speaker a forum at the Brookings Institution on "U.S. Energy Security and the 2008 Presidential Election" where he called for energy security and the economic and environmental issues closely associated with it to be the most important topic of the 2008 presidential election.
