Lawmakers Re-energized on Energy

WASHINGTON — Senator Susan Collins, Republican of Maine, said anxiety over fuel oil costs is at crisis proportions in her state. Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat of Minnesota, said oil drilling advocates weighed in from the sidelines as she marched in a Fourth of July parade.
Senator Bob Casey, Democrat of Pennsylvania, heard it even closer to home, from his own teenager. “My daughter said, ‘Dad, what are you going to do about gas prices?’ ” Mr. Casey said.
Neighborhood teams would fan out this summer to winterize 5,000 homes in Maine. Every community would designate a “warming shelter” for residents facing a heating crisis.
Longer term, new van pools, bus routes and train service would come on line. During the next decade, all of Maine’s 477,000 single-family homes would be insulated and air sealed, at a cost of $3 billion.
Governor John Baldacci today unveiled a new Web page for consumers and businesses eager to find ways to reduce their energy costs, according to the governor’s press office.
Part of a continuing effort to empower Maine people with information, the governor said that prior to the development of this Web page, energy resources were scattered among various State government and private Internet sites, making information difficult to find.
The Web site can be accessed directly from the State government Web site, www.maine.gov
