U.S. ENERGY STRATEGY BILL


Item #d90jul71

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee passed the wide-ranging energy bill introduced by Sen. Timothy Wirth (S. 324), although its strongest requirement, a 20-percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions by the year 2005, was replaced by study of the consequences of such action. The measure requires the Department of Energy to lead the forging of a "Least Cost Energy Strategy" that will lay out plans for energy conservation and development of renewable energy sources. It also authorizes the national laboratories to cooperate with private industry for research and development, and stipulates U.S. cooperation on a framework convention on climate change by the year 1992. (See Air/Water Pollution Rep., p. 154, May 1990; Clean Air Rep., p. 20, May 24.)
