The Federal DOE is a 48 billion dollar duplication of state agencies. Instead of collecting taxes from states and then distributing that money to states minus the costs of collection and distribution, leave the money where it is. Local agencies know the needs of their constituents better than a distant office and did arguably better without the DOE, which only came into existence in 1980.
