A House and Senate conference committee approves a final version of a massive, Republican-written energy bill that includes $23 billion in tax incentives. The measure, a top priority for President Bush, goes to both chambers for final approval. Democrats, who call the bill a gift to polluters and fossil fuel producers, may try to block it in the Senate. Hear NPR's David Welna.
