Rep. Fred Upton (pictured), the Michigan Republican seeking to lead the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has plenty of ideas for energy reform. But they don’t include cap-and-trade, a carbon tax or a monstrous overarching bill. Instead he seeks reasonable, smaller-size reforms, The Hill reports.

upton, manageable, energy , reform“That would be a sharp contrast to current Chairman Henry Waxman, D-Calif., who moved a nearly 1,100-page climate and energy bill through the committee in 2009, a measure that narrowly passed the House but died in the Senate,” the news service reports.

“You are never going to see a 1,000 page bill,” Upton says “You are never going to see cap-and-trade or a carbon tax.”
Instead he seeks to meet booming electricity demand with nuclear power, “safe drilling,” “clean” coal, renewable energy, and natural gas -- “the whole portfolio,” he says.
