As the magnitude of the energy problem confronting the United States has increased over the last decade, federal regulatory agencies have assumed a greater role in regulating and supervising the energy industry. This Article addresses the advantages and disadvantages associated with the procedures used by federal agencies in both formulating and implementing energy policies. After examining the various procedures used, the author suggests criteria which legislators, agencies, and reviewing courts should consider in selecting procedures for future formulation and implementation of energy policies.
