This is the February 15, 2001 hearing on "Electricity Markets: Lessons Learned from California," held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and Air Quality of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. From the opening statement of Joe Barton: "In this Congress, the subcommittee intends to focus on the balance of supply and demand in energy. We also want to take an inventory of our Nation's energy capabilities and the obstacles that we face in order to get a better supply/demand balance. Our comprehensive review will be of each of the different fuel sources, and of also the various differences between the regions of our great Nation. We intend to work closely with other committees in the House and the Senate and with the new President and Vice President and his cabinet and the executive branch. Today we are going to begin a series of hearings dealing with our electricity markets. We want to focus on the experiences of several States which have restructured their electricity markets in the last several years. On the West Coast, the great State of California which passed its bill in 1996; on the East Coast, the great State of Pennsylvania, which also passed its bill in 1996; and finally in the central part of the country, the great State of Ohio, which restructured in 1999." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter G. Esposito, John R. Fielder, Robert Levin, Adrian T. Moore, John M. Quain, John W. Rowe, Alan R. Schriber, Michael J. Travieso, and Carl Wood.
