Rep. Whitfield: Take Advantage of the Resources We Have

Posted by ACCCE at 11:19 am, February 05, 2013

U.S. Representative Ed Whitfield (KY-01), chairman of the Subcommittee on Energy and Power, spoke this morning at the NARUC Winter meetings in Washington, DC and said “Lets do everything possible to take advantage of the resources we have in America so we can be energy independent.”

Just last month, Rep. Whitfield had this to say upon being named chairman of his subcommittee again:

“I believe we made great strides during the 112th Congress in reining in President Obama’s overreaching EPA, but we have more work to do. We will continue to pursue policies that help promote job creation, economic growth, and energy independence – policies that will continue to benefit Kentucky families. ”

“This administration is still trying to regulate coal out of existence and I refuse to stand idly by as these regulations destroy jobs and increase energy costs for consumers. We have once again developed an aggressive agenda that I hope we can pursue in a bipartisan manner.”

During his presentation today at NARUC, Rep. Whitfield urged attendees to “adopt policies that ensure that our job creators can remain competitive in the global marketplace.” And to “not be alarmist, let’s have a balanced approach.”

According to Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Rep. Fred Upton, “Chairman Whitfield has been a champion of North American energy and a leader in our pursuit of energy independence. He led the charge last Congress in our fight against harmful EPA regulations and helped advance several commonsense, bipartisan energy solutions.” He is a valued leader of this committee and I am pleased he will remain chairman of this important panel as we look at ways to fortify our energy security and strengthen our economy.”
