During debate on legislation outlining the nation's energy policy, Congressman Boehlert (R-NY) proposed an amendment that would have required the Department of Transportation to ensure that the total amount of gasoline consumed annually by cars and light trucks in the year 2010 will have been reduced by five percent relative to gasoline consumption in 2004. The purpose of Boehlert's amendment was to spur the development of more fuel efficient automobiles, a goal which progressives strongly endorse. The Boehlert amendment failed to garner majority support and was defeated on a 162-268 vote.
