Though generally viewed as the Republican energy plan, Congressman Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) Roadmap for America’s Energy Future (H.R. 909) contains one section that would create a trust fund to finance renewable energy projects that could attract enough bipartisan support to survive the partisan Congress. Highlights of the legislation include drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, building 200 nuclear plants by 2040, lifting carbon emission restrictions on coal-to-liquids fuel, requiring offshore lease sales every 270 days, siting a nuclear waste site, and amending the Clean Air Act and Endangered Species Act to prohibit regulation of emissions for climate change purposes or to consider the climate-related impact of greenhouse gases upon plants, fish, or wildlife. Though most of these provisions are opposed by House Democrats, Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) has expressed interest in Titles 2 and 3 that would create a trust fund to finance renewable electric generation and renewable fuel production by means of a reverse auction that would be used to dispense funds to build the facilities. The two congressmen are expected to soon meet to discuss the concept.
