E&E Daily reporters examine new push on energy issues from the Bush administration

With President Bush singling out oil dependence as a key issue during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, lawmakers hope to see more funding for energy programs in the administration's Fiscal Year 2007 budget. During today's OnPoint, E&E Daily senior reporters Mary O'Driscoll, Darren Samuelsohn and Ben Geman discuss lawmakers' reaction to the speech, and how it could affect the congressional agenda this year. Plus, they examine whether energy issues will play into this year's elections, and how advocacy groups responded to the president's address.
