Let me just say that this would almost certainly be vetoed if it is passed.

I ask given the fact that this bill certainly has nowhere near the amount of support to override a veto, that it is withdrawn

My amendment:

The text of this bill shall be replaced with the following wording:

1. Section 4 of F.L. 6-21 is repealed.

2. Section 5 of F.L. 6-21 shall be replaced with the following language:

All revenues received by said leasing in FY 2006 and in future Fiscal Years may be authorized by the Senate in future legislation to either fund research into alternative energy resources (e.g. coal, nuclear energy, etc.) through the Energy Sub-Department of the Department of Treasury and Social Services or to give targeted tax credits to companies involved in the research of said alternative energy resources.

F.L. 6-21 is here:

Nay

(plus, coal is not an "alternative energy" source. It is different than oil of course, but it isn't considered "alternative")

The amendment has passed, with 5 votes in favor, 3 against, 1 not voting and 1 seat absent.

The bill is thus withdrawn.
