April 25, 1980. This article reports on a legislative amendment that would?ve allowed the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) to spend up to $700 million on conservation programs and development of alternative energy resources. BPA expressed concern about how the approach would address what they thought was a ?very complicated problem.? Similar versions of the amendment had passed House subcommittees in previous years, but failed to pass in the Senate. Further discussion connects the amendment to the Regional Power Bill.
