For decades we have struggled with an inadequate energy policy. These energy policy failures have placed us in an increasingly precarious position. With sweeping policy proposals that will shape our energy future now on the front burner in Congress, this important forum will provide an opportunity to review them in the context of their impact on national security. The forum will bring together leading members of Congress, public policy groups, veterans groups, energy related associations, and the military to discuss energy and to reflect on how it affects national security. The program is especially timely given the sweeping energy proposals now pending before Congress.
Agenda: The program will explore current energy policy and alternatives and relate it to national security issues. Featured on the program will be several Members of Congress, representatives of public policy groups, representatives of various energy trade associations, and a perspective from the services. The luncheon speaker is former national security advisor Bud McFarlane.
