Planning for American Energy Act of 2012 (H.R. 4381)
Status: Passed in Committee on May 16, 2012 with a bipartisan vote of 24-14. Placed on the House Calendar.
  • The Planning for American Energy Act of 2012 establishes common sense steps to create an all-of-the-above American energy plan for using our vast federal resources to meet our Nation’s energy needs.

  • The bill ensures that our nation’s energy needs are met through development of both traditional and alternative energy resources - a true all-of-the-above approach that will lower the cost of energy, grow our economy, and get Americans working.

  • Specifically, H.R. 4381:

    • Strengthens our energy security by requiring the Secretary of the Interior to develop a Quadrennial Federal Onshore Energy Production Strategy (a strategic action plan) every four years on how to responsibly develop our federal onshore energy resources in order to meet the United States’ energy demands and promote the energy security of our Nation.

    • Requires the Secretary to set production objectives for the development of our Federal resources. Also requires the Secretary to report annually to Congress on the progress of meeting these objectives.

    • Ensures the development of a true all-of-the-above energy plan that embraces all of America’s vast energy resources by requiring that oil, natural gas, coal, wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal, oil shale and minerals be included in the plan.
