dc.description.abstractThis Article examines the political and procedural history of the EPAct in order to arrive at some general lessons and recommendations regarding congressional formation of energy policy. At least two commentators on the EPAct praise it as the "second generation" of federal energy policy, based in laws that achieve "their mandates more by consensus than coercion." The EPAct's history, however, was far from smooth. Procedural obstacles, such as filibuster, inter-committee conflict, and inter-chamber conflict, led many to declare the EPAct dead on several occasions prior to its passage.en_US
