Pursuant to its authorization in March 2007, legislation is not referred to the Select Committee. Instead, the Select Committee engages in oversight and educational activities through hearings, reports, briefings and other means intended to highlight the importance of adopting policies which reduce our dependence on foreign oil and our emissions of global warming pollution. In addition, each Member of the Select Committee sits on legislative committees which process legislation and amendments affecting energy independence and global warming issues in other committees.
