> WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S Congress adjourned without passing key parts of the Bush administration's energy plan, but the White House has also fallen short in implementing the changes it called for in a new national energy policy.

A special White House task force headed by Vice President Dick Cheney unveiled back in May the administration's energy plan with much fanfare and controversy.

Of the 105 recommendations in the plan, 85 of them could be implemented by the White House and various government agencies under the administration's control, while the other 20 recommendations needed congressional approval.
