A Comparison of Current Legislation Before the 111th Congress and Recommendations Developed for a National Energy Policy for the United States

This white paper is designed in the mode of classic British Parliamentary white papers.  It builds upon two previous white papers completed by advanced students at the University of Oregon School of Law.  The latter resulted in a recommended sine qua non set of polices for a National Energy Policy (NEP) for the United States.  This year’s paper revised and strengthened the latter and then compared the results with the energy bills before both the House and Senate of the current (111th)  session of Congress as of February 12, 2010.  Readers will find in this white paper’s six sections interlinear quotations of all the key passages from those bills.  The interlinear quotations from House Bills are highlighted in blue and Senate Bills are highlighted in red.
