Rep. Tipton Introduces Legislation to Establish an All-of-the-Above Energy Program for Federal Lands
Rep. Scott Tipton (CO-03)
Rep. Scott Tipton introduced H.R. 4381, the Planning for American Energy Act of 2012, which would require the Secretary of the Interior to establish an all-of-the-above energy program for federal lands by reviewing the nation’s energy needs and then establishing goals for federal land energy production to meet those needs from all energy sources, oil, natural gas, coal and renewables.
Rep. Tipton issued the following statement:
"It's great to talk about the need for an all-of-the-above energy strategy in this country, but in order to make it a reality and turn words into action, there needs to be a plan. The Planning for American Energy Act puts a common sense plan into place by requiring that our nation’s energy needs are met through development of traditional and alternative energy resources with a true all-of-the-above approach that will lower the cost of energy, jumpstart economic recovery, and get Americans working."
