Energy Security

Mark Reisman and Daniel Singer, Co-Chairs

 Mission:  AJC has long believed that the development of a comprehensive U.S. energy program is essential to the economic and social well-being of our country, our national security and the continuance of our broad role in world affairs.  AJC carries out a broad array of initiatives at the National level to effectuate this. At the local level, this Committee has a two-fold mission:

    1. To advocate and lobby local, state, and federal legislators to promote energy independence from foreign olil and investment in renewable, alternative fuel sources.
    2. To encourage and promote public awareness of the issues involved.

The committee recently completed a very successful five-year energy independence initiative.
