Labrador gets first bill through U.S. House

Idaho Congressman Raul Labrador had his first bill pass the U.S. House today, an amendment aimed at easing geothermal energy exploration. “My amendment establishes a common sense, streamlined policy for the development of clean geothermal resources that will create jobs and provide American families increased access to affordable energy,” Labrador said. The measure, H.R. 2171, passed as an amendment to H.R. 3408, another energy bill; it was approved on a bipartisan 244-176 vote. You can read Labrador's full announcement here.
