Library of Congress, Washington, DC. Congressional Research Service.
This collection of excerpts and bibliographies address the three debate propositions selected as subjects of the 1978-1979 debate question for high schools selected by the National University Extension Service, "What should be the energy policy of the United States?" The collection is divided into three parts each addressing one of the debate propositions: (1) Resolved, that the Federal Government should exclusively control the development and distribution of energy resources in the United States; (2) Resolved, that the Federal Government should establish a comprehensive program to significantly reduce energy consumption in the United States; and (3) Resolved, that the Federal Government should establish a comprehensive program to significantly increase the energy independence of the United States. An introductory section summarizes the U.S. policy response to the energy dilemma. The materials are intended not as an exhaustive coverage of the subject, but to furnish debators with a basis for further research on the topic. (RE)
