"DOE: Perry Targets Agency's NEPA, Efficiency Regs"

"The Department of Energy released its long-awaited report today on policies that are ripe for repeal or reform because they hinder energy production.

The report from Energy Secretary Rick Perry calls for reviewing National Environmental Policy Act guidelines, streamlining liquefied natural gas exports and reassessing national laboratory policies.

The document, which was submitted to the White House and does not mention climate change, is the first sign of the agency's response to a high-profile executive order the White House issued earlier this year to scrap red tape and promote 'energy independence.'"
