ABSTRACT
The article reports that lawmakers are being urged by advocates to amend the newly passed cap-and-trade energy bill to include a larger amount of funding for energy assistance to the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). LIHEAP is a federal program which provides financial assistance to help low-income households heat and/or cool their homes. The House bill now provides low-income households, with a standard energy refund amount, based on the number of people in the household.
