It enables us to do more with less energy, and delivers savings to users throughout the supply chain,” Murkowski said. “I thank Senator Portman and Senator Shaheen for their hard work. This legislation is an important start to advancing additional efficiency measures that the committee will take up as part of a broader energy bill this spring.”
