President Bush, Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham (left) and economic advisor Larry Lindsey speak with the media in the Oval Office before the President signed an executive order that sets a standard of energy efficiency July 31, 2001. "We've set what we call a one-watt standard throughout the federal government, that we expect our agencies to be ridding themselves of the vampires and using energy conservation devices," said the President during his remarks. "The Secretary of Energy has agreed to lead this project, and I'm so thankful for it. The federal government can be good stewards of our resources and we fully intend to be."
