The United States Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources has jurisdiction over matters related to energy and nuclear waste policy, territorial policy, native Hawaiian matters, and public lands.
Its roots go back to the 'Committee on Interior and Insulars Affair'. In 1977, it became the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, and Indian Affairs were removed from its jurisdiction into its own committee.
The Energy Committee has four subcommittees:
|Energy||Cory Gardner (R-CO)||Joe Manchin (D-WV)|
|National Parks||Steve Daines (D-MT)||Mazie Hirono (D-HI)|
|Public Lands, Forests and Mining||Mike Lee (R-UT)||Ron Wyden (D-OR)|
|Water and Power||Jeff Flake (R-AZ)||Angus King (I-ME)|
