Mission Statement

The NCSL Task Force on Energy Supply brings together legislators to examine critical energy issues that policymakers face as they shape energy policies to build a reliable, affordable and resilient national energy system. The task force, created in 2009, consists of legislators and legislative staff with experience and an interest in developing and analyzing state energy policy.

Ensuring a long-term, affordable and stable energy supply has been a top concern of state policymakers.

As state decision-makers create and shape energy policy, they are confronting the challenge of utilizing the growing wealth of North American energy resources and incorporating new energy technologies in a way that energizes the economy while addressing environmental concerns.

The task force also provides NCSL with guidance as it develops energy policy resources for legislators and legislative staff.
