"Sue and Settle" refers to when a federal agency agrees to a settlement agreement, in a lawsuit from special interest groups, to create priorities and rules outside of the normal rulemaking process. The agency intentionally relinquishes statutory discretion by committing to timelines and priorities that often realign agency duties. These settlement agreements are negotiated behind closed doors with no participation from the public or affected parties.

Index of U.S. Energy Security Risk: 2017 Edition

Index of U.S. Energy Security Risk: 2017 Edition

This 2017 Edition of the Index of U.S. Energy Security Risk is the first that we are releasing as the Chamber’s Global Energy Institute. GEI’s original incarnation, the Institute for 21st Century Energy, was formed in 2007 at a time when gasoline prices were at an all-time high, America’s dependence on foreign oil was growing, and our energy security was worsening alarmingly. Today, the situation is much different, which is reflected in our new name. American energy has changed our economy, and now it will change the world’s.

What if... The United States was Forced to Pay EU Energy Prices?

What if... The United States was Forced to Pay EU Energy Prices?

This paper marks the third in a series of reports that we will be releasing this fall, each taking a substantive look at what might have happened in the past – or could happen in the future – if certain energy-related ideas and policy prescriptions put forth by prominent politicians and their supporters were actually adopted. We’re calling it the Energy Accountability Series. Certainly, one doesn’t need to look far these days to find platforms or outlets that claim to be definitive “fact-checkers” of all manner of utterances candidates make on the campaign trail. On that, the Energy Accountability Series will not seek to reinvent the wheel. What we are much more interested in – and what we think will be much more valuable to voters, as well – is taking a step back to better understand (and quantify where possible) the real-world, economy-wide consequences of living in a world in which candidates’ rhetoric on critical energy issues were to become reality.
