Description (excerpt):

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI), hosted a discussion at OurEnergyPolicy.org (OEP) on ta discussion focused on his proposed legislation, the FAIR Energy Policy Act (S.2296). Here is a snapshot of the perspectives offered by OEP’s diverse community of vetted experts.

“My legislation is based on a very simple idea. And that idea is that there ought to be a level playing field between fossil fuels and clean energy…The FAIR Energy Policy Act is about leveling the playing field and doing more to wean ourselves off of fossil fuels.” – United States Senator, Brian Schatz (DHI)
