My bill looks towards the future in terms of what energy we are going to be using.  It takes us off of our addiction to oil by funding research and development into alternative forms of energy, such as hydrogen power, solar power, and wind power.

This is all about national security as well.  Our addiction to energy from the Mideast is a dangeorus policy.

This bill brings universities to the table.  Programs like Future Gen will be administered by the Department of Energy in coordination with universities.
