"Dr. Jake Ross came to Washington, D.C., to make a difference. As the science advisor to a newly-elected freshman senator, Jake has crafted a comprehensive energy plan that employs innovative new technologies to make America the world's leader in energy production while simultaneously boosting the economy and protecting the environment. The facts--and the science--are on Jake's side, but his plan soon runs afoul of entrenched special interests, well-funded lobbies, cynical bureaucrats, pork-barrel politics, and one very powerful U.S. Senator. To keep his plan alive and secure a sustainable future for America, Jake needs a crash course in the way Washington really works. Everyone keeps telling him that his plan has no hope of succeeding, but Jake is determined to prove them wrong even if it kills him ... something that certain hostile parties may be all too happy to arrange"-- provided by publisher.

Never mentioned better fuel efficiency for car & trucks laws. Too bread & butter?
However, very nice on biofuels vs food security issue.
Science fiction? Not really. More like near future story.
Bipartisan comprehensive energy bill? Oh, boy. No way.

Science-fiction? No. Power Surge is a mild thriller about how the US Senate and proposed laws operate.
