Bring 'em Back

Reader Elmer sends today's Corning Leader front page [pdf] (and jump [pdf]), where Randy Kuhl and Eric Massa agree that Congress should be called back into session to deal with the energy crisis.

The article is a good comparison and contrast of both candidates' positions on energy. Massa has refined his position on the Strategic Petroleum Reserve: he supports a plan to releasing light crude oil from the reserve and replacing it with heavy crude, which is more appropriate for the military. Kuhl voted against HR 6578, which contained that change.

Kuhl adds a new position. Countering Massa's claim that domestic oil could be sold abroad, Kuhl proposed a bill that would prevent the foreign sale of domestic oil. Those who believe that such a bill could work might want to check this out.
