Energy Bill is Signed by the President, Now Go Back to Sleep

The energy bill has been signed into law by the President. It increases automobile fuel economy to 35 mpg by 2020 and increases biofuel production to 360 billion gallons by 2022. Stricter energy efficiency requirements for household appliances and government buildings are included along with phasing our incandescent light bulbs in ten years.

Given where this bill could have taken the US, there's little to get excited about except for the fact that the bill wasn't vetoed and there is always next year.
