For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
July 17, 2001

Statement by the President

Today's actions in the House Resources Committee and in the House Energy and Commerce Committee represent important steps toward implementing a comprehensive and balanced energy policy. I am pleased that the committees are acting swiftly to increase energy efficiency, expand use of renewables and open a small portion of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for environmentally responsible exploration.

For too long America has lacked a comprehensive national energy policy. My Administration has proposed a plan that will reduce America's reliance on foreign oil through increased conservation and efficiency, improved infrastructure and increased exploration. I commend the House committees for moving forward on these goals.
