The Rural Energy Savings Program Act (RESPA), sometimes referred to as the Conrad-Lugar Amendment, includes four policy improvements designed to help rural families, farms and small businesses save money on their energy bills.  Generally, the proposed legislation: (1) authorizes coops to provide low-interest loans to members for energy efficiency improvements; (2) changes the definition of "biomassed manufacturing" as it relates to the Biorefinery Assistance Program; (3) streamlines rules and provisions of the Biomass Crop Assistance Program; and (4) eliminates the requirement under the Rural Energy for America Program that farmers install an additional meter for onsite power generation.  See Sen. Richard Lugar's press release for more.
