ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the introduction of the energy legislation, 2009 American Clean Energy and Security Act, by U.S. Representatives, Henry Waxman and Ed Markey, regarding the regulation of carbon and promotion of energy alternatives. It states that the bill, designed to cut greenhouse gases, aims to create a national renewable electricity standard. According to Tad Mayfield, president of Texas Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO), the Act is unrealistic and unwieldy.
