2. Solutions for the Economy: Open up Energy

Second in a series (see equal wages here) on how to revitalize the economy without spending our children's future. H.R. 1431 is the No Cost Stimulus Act of 2009 This bill would responsibly open up energy resources within the Untied States to energy production, adding revenue to the federal government in many situations, and overall having only the smallest affect on the taxpayer.

From Heritage:
Congressman Rob Bishop (R–UT) and Senator David Vitter (R–LA) recently introduced legislation that would create an estimated 2 million jobs, increase gross domestic product $10 trillion over the next 30 years, and lower energy costs—all without a huge expense to the taxpayer.

The No Cost Stimulus Act of 2009 would do this by expanding domestic energy supply and streamlining burdensome, unnecessary environmental review processes that have placed a stranglehold on access to reliable U.S. energy sources for decades.
