Federal Energy Policy and the Impact on States

August 10, 2014

Nearly every energy issue federal policymakers address has some impact on state legislatures. The U.S. Senate is looking at a number of key issues that could affect states. This session explored current issues that affect the states and examined arguments on both sides of the issue regarding who should manage federal lands in the West—states or the federal government.
