Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) said January 23 that the Japanese government is eager to become a significant purchaser of American liquefied natural gas exports, as it faces an uncertain energy future after the March 2011 tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disaster. The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will hold one of its first hearings on the issue of LNG exports. Senator Murkowski will release her energy legislation blueprint this week, and will soon follow that with a revenue-sharing bill that she will cosponsor with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA). She will also continue to meet with Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Lamar Alexander (R-TN), and Ron Wyden (D-OR) to develop a proposal for an interim nuclear waste storage site while negotiating on a permanent solution.
