Senators offer amendments to defense bill

-A A +A

Politics: Biofuels, NNSA reform are on the table

U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Jeff Bingaman announced work Wednesday on several amendments to the National Defense Authorization Act, including one amendment passed that would ensure the Department of Defense could continue to purchase biofuels, such as those being advanced by companies in New Mexico.

“With these amendments, we are ensuring New Mexico is a leader in the 21st century clean energy economy, and at the forefront of the national security achievements being made at our national labs and within the defense community,” Udall said. “Our biofuels amendment is especially important to national security and businesses in our state so I’m glad we were able to get one over the finish line today.”

“The National Defense Authorization Act is one of the most important bills for New Mexico because it helps fund our national labs and our military installations. I am especially glad that the Senate adopted our amendment to allow the Pentagon to invest in all types of fuels — including biofuels — for its fleets. The Defense Department is a major consumer of fuel, and the more homegrown, cleaner-burning fuel it purchases the better off we will be,” said Bingaman, who chairs the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
