The American Energy Solutions Group is working to craft legislative solutions that will lower energy prices for American families and small businesses and create energy independence for the American people.  This event, one of several being held across the United States, is an opportunity for Members of Congress to join with leading experts on energy in a discussion about nuclear power, renewable and alternative energy technologies, and U.S. energy policy, as well as the effect energy legislation pending in Congress will have on American jobs and the economy as a whole.
