The National Energy Plan. Summary of Public Participation.
Executive Office of the President, Washington, DC. Energy Policy and Planning.
In March 1977, a project was begun by the Executive Office of the President to seek out comments and recommendations from the public for a comprehensive national energy plan. Three simultaneous approaches were used: (1) ten regional town meetings were conducted; (2) Twenty-one small conferences were held at the White House; and (3) a public notice was placed in the Federal Register and some 600,000 of these were mailed directly to citizens to ask their opinion. This booklet summarizes the results of these three approaches. Public opinion in the policy areas of conservation, supply development, federal regulation, hardship to citizens, imported energy, environment, citizen participation, and intergovernmental relations is discussed. Lists of suggestions citizens made for conserving energy are included. (AJ)
