In an effort to create an all-of-the-above energy plan in the United States, Congressman Scott Tipton re-introduced the Planning for American Energy Act last week in the House of Representatives. The bill calls for the Energy Information Administration to protect U.S. energy needs over the next 30 years and for the Departments of Interior and Agriculture to develop four-year energy production plans that incorporate wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, oil, natural gas and coal. The bill would also preserve current environmental reviews and safeguards to support responsible development of all energy sources. Tipton says that putting a true all-of-the-above domestic energy plan in place would unleash the potential for thousands on new jobs in the U.S. and would ensure the country has energy security well into the future. Because of these benefits, Tipton believes that creating a sustainable energy future in the U.S. is something congress needs to prioritize.
