    Kennedy also demanded that auto companies improve their fuel-economy standards in response to rising oil prices, and fought to support other efforts to promote renewable energy. He was able to secure $25 million in funds from the 2009 stimulus package to build a wind-energy testing facility in Massachusetts!
