Citing the need for a long-term domestic energy plan to ensure reliable production and stable prices, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO), yesterday, reintroduced the Planning for American Energy Act for the 114th Congress. Tipton says the all-of-the-above energy legislation would unleash the potential for thousands of new jobs as well as establish a reliable, affordable and secure source of American energy through responsible production. The Planning for American Energy Act requires that all energy resources including wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, oil, natural gas, coal, oil shale and minerals needed for energy development be included in the plan. These goals would be accomplished responsibly, without repealing a single environmental regulation or review process. The legislation passed out the House of Representatives with bipartisan support twice in the 113th Congress as part of the Lowering Gasoline Prices to Fuel an America that Works Act (H.R. 4899) and the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act (H.R. 2).
