Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that, in order to meet our nation's growing long-term energy demands and maintain our economic viability in the world marketplace, any comprehensive and economically viable energy bill must address:

  • taking advantage of our abundant domestic coal supply;
  • using recent technological innovations to exploit our vast supply of natural gas;
  • increasing our domestic oil production, infrastructure, and refining capacity;
  • expanding the use of renewable and alternative energy sources;
  • exploring and investing in advanced nuclear reactor technologies;
  • reflecting the discoveries of light sweet crude in the United States and evaluating the capacity and market for extracting and refining it;
  • providing incentives for an increase in conservation and energy efficiency;
  • expanding research and development through new methods such as public-private partnerships; and
  • enhancing consumer awareness and education regarding methods to increase energy efficiency and available alternative fuel sources to reduce America's dependence on Middle Eastern oil and provide energy security.
