Can Congress find room for fossil fuels and green incentives in stimulus talks? Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

    • Business News

The US House of Representatives has passed the $3 trillion HEROES stimulus package with barely a mention of the energy sector. The legislation is going nowhere in its current form after Senate Republicans dismissed it out of hand and President Trump promised to veto it.
So where is the financial aid that the White House promised the oil and gas sector?
Kevin Book, managing director of ClearView Energy Partners, tells us how Republicans and Democrats might find energy-sector tradeoffs to include in a future compromise stimulus package.
We spoke about the fate of the administration's efforts to fill the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. We look at who came out ahead in the 2015 tradeoff that opened the door for US crude exports. And Kevin talks about how the November election is looming over these negotiations in Washington.
