Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) will release her energy blueprint, Energy 20/20: A Vision for America’s Energy Future on February 4. The plan is aimed at achieving complete independence from OPEC oil imports in seven years by undertaking such actions as approving the Keystone XL pipeline; allowing drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge; increasing domestic oil and natural gas production; directing new revenue to create an Advanced Energy Trust Fund to encourage and hasten clean energy research; and replacing traditional subsidies with technology neutral, cost effective, and private-investment-friendly support. The plan includes language that Senator Murkowski has been drafting with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) to grant an automatic 27.5 percent share of revenue to coastal states housing offshore oil and gas, wind, and other energy production, and another 10 percent for energy research and development, alternative energy, efficiency, and conservation; it would also expand from three to 12 miles the area states control off their coasts for energy production. On a related note, Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) will release draft nuclear waste legislation in the next several weeks.
