Roll Call: Latest News on Capitol Hill, Congress, Politics and Elections
July 28, 2015

Welcome to Energy Xtra

Randy LeonardWelcome to Energy Xtra, the fifth Policy Pulse blog from CQ Roll Call, where we’ll be covering the all-of-the-above energy debates on renewable generation, efficiency, electric reliability, infrastructure, nuclear developments, coal technology and implications of the ongoing oil and gas boom.

We’ll bring you keen insight from Capitol Hill by our CQ Roll Call energy team and delve into some of the less-covered debates that retain broad implications for those of you in hometowns far from the D.C. beltway.

A word about me: I’ve been covering energy and environmental policy on Capitol Hill for the better part of a year and have written energy stories for The New York Times, National Geographic, The Atlantic and The Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch.

I have a degree in geology and a background as an environmental consultant conducting investigations at fuel sites owned by big oil. Raised on a mountaintop in California, I visited every state in the Union by the age of 18 and have lived in New York City and Chicago.

(CQ Roll Call’s other Policy Pulse blogs are: Technocrat, for the tech and telecom community; Five by Five, which covers the defense industry and national security; The Container, on all things transportation; and Healthopolis, a forum for health policy news.)
