Requires preference to be given in the awarding of such grants to partner institutions whose proposal incorporates E3 concepts. Defines "E3" as the academic and professional area of technological development encompassing the fields of energy, environment, and economy.
Requires the Secretary to evaluate the effectiveness of the activities carried out under this Act.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
