I called Joe Donnelly’s local office today (574) 288-2780 and spoke with an office intern named Kelly. I told her about the hydroelectric plant South Bend had intended to build on the East Race back in the 1980’s.

I asked Kelly to ask Joe Donnelly if there was any money in the current Energy bill before Congress that could help fund the hydroelectric plant in South Bend.

I realize that Mr. Donnelly is very supportive of biofuels, however we now know that the use of biofuels actually increases  greenhouse gas production because of the processes used to produce, process and transport them!

 I will report back on what Mr. Donnelly reports to me.
