Energy Policy

Lott, Dorgan make recommendations for national energy strategy

How can the president and his Cabinet effectively lead the way on energy policy and strategy in the United States? During today's OnPoint, former Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) and former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott (R-Miss.) discuss the Bipartisan Policy Center's new blueprint on energy, calling for the president to establish a cross-agency energy council. The senators, who are co-chairmen of the Bipartisan Policy Center's Energy Project, also weigh in on how partisanship in Congress may affect the future of energy legislation.
