A top Senate Republican on Monday unveiled a broad energy policy blueprint with some 200 recommendations for her fellow lawmakers, including plans for expanding offshore oil drilling and steering revenue from the work to research into alternative power technologies.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said she hopes the framework provides the foundation for new, bipartisan energy legislation, after years of a “muddled” approach.

“What I am trying to do is figure out how we get moving on some energy policy for our country at a time when our energy policy is muddled up,” Murkowski said, adding that lawmakers must move away from an energy policy “focused on scarcity to one that’s focused on abundance and what that means for this nation.”
