Energy Taskforce

Goal / Description:

The GOP Congress has aggressively blocked efforts to develop national energy concerns and establish a national energy policy.

  • Passing a comprehensive national energy policy to take the United States into the 21st Century
  • Educating Members on the varied sources of energy supply, production and distribution
  • Supporting legislation that encourages responsible energy development and use
