From the prepared statement of JOSEPH I. LIEBERMAN,: "As you know, the Enhanced Energy Security Act is based on the Vehicle and Fuel Choices for American Security Act, a bill that Senators Bayh, Brownback, Coleman, and I introduced with six other colleagues last November. Twenty-six Senators, including Senator Bingaman, have now cosponsored that bill, which I like to call the Set America Free Act. Seventy-nine Congressmen and Congresswomen have cosponsored its companion bill in the House of Representatives. The Set America Free Act's core provisions fall within the jurisdiction of this committee. Senator Bingaman has taken that core, has slightly amended and supplemented it, and has reintroduced it as the Enhanced Energy Security Act. He also has taken those of the Set America Free Act's provisions that fall within the Finance Committee's jurisdiction and has introduced them as the Enhanced Energy Security Tax Incentives Act, of which I am also an original cosponsor." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Evan Bayh, Jeff Bingaman, Kateri Callahn, Norm Coleman, Pete V. Dominici, Byron L. Dorgan, Alexander Karsner, Daniel A. Lashof, Joseph I. Lieberman, Steven Nadel, Ken Salazar, and Craig Thomas.
