Energy - Related Provisions in Recent Legislation
In late 2008 and early 2009, two major pieces of legislation were enacted into law with the stated goal of spurring the economy. The 2008 legislation (H.R 1424) was titled the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. Division B of the 2008 law contains the energy-related provisions. The 2009 law (H.R. 1) is known as the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and is the largest spending bill in U.S. history. Energy-related provisions are included among the various provisions of the bill.
