By a vote of 62 to 38, the U.S. Senate decided yesterday to remove from the energy bill a provision that would have increased Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency vehicle standards. Instead, the Senate opted for an industry-backed proposal to give the Bush administration two more years to study the implications of raising CAFE standards. You can find the full text of Amendment 2997 here; the English translation is that a yea vote for the amendment is a thumbs-down to cleaner, greener vehicles. See how your senators voted.

Meanwhile, by a vote of 56 to 44, the Senate agreed to exempt pickup trucks from any future changes to fuel-efficiency standards. Policy wonks can check out the full text of Amendment 2998 here. See how your senators voted.
