Blackwell fails to appreciate National Security issue.
The Natural Gas Act does have subsidies for big trucks switching to Natural Gas and for stations to provide the Fuel across the nation. The reason most conservatives have been endorsing this "social engineering --picking" is because it will start the Natural Gas in transportation rolling and this will greatly reduce our nation's expenditures on OPEC oil. Big businesses knows that Obama is blocking NG and they feared making investments in the field because Obama couldn't be trusted. For example, Obama and communist friends have been filling the media with the antifracking crap.
Ok to reduce the subsidy , but critical to ASAP get NG moving into big trucks.
