Abstract:

The following are among the authors recommendations Wherever possible, federal policy planners should resist the temptation to preempt state action The 10 million FEA grant program is critical in establishing continuing working relations with states, regions, and localities, and in priming the pump for a necessarily larger joint planning program thereafter Regional or public access to Project Independence Blueprint computer models would be beneficial Critical planning problems are often regional or interregional e.g., PAD Districts I, III, V for offshore drilling, and state decisions on synthetic gas and coal involve interregional dependencies and Productive results can be anticipated from joint federalinterstate-regional, and federalintrastate-regional energy planning, in addition to FEA grants at the state level.
