Wednesday morning, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) postponed a procedural vote on S. 3815, the Promoting Natural Gas and Electric Vehicles Act of 2010. Opposed by the propane industry in its present form, S. 3815 would provide federal financial incentives toward the manufacture, purchase and related infrastructure costs of natural gas vehicles. Concurrent propane vehicle programs are not included in the legislation. Reid’s office released a statement suggesting that while S. 3815 has some bipartisan backing, it did not have the 60 votes necessary to move forward at this time. However, his office remains confident that a bipartisan consensus can be reached.
