The Incoming Congressional Freshmen
Politico has a nice posting about the incoming freshman GOP in the House and their views on environment and energy issues. The bottom line:
House Republican freshmen looking to make names for themselves on energy issues in the next Congress have some goals in common: Ramp up domestic energy production, roll back the Obama administration’s environmental rules and ensure that cap-and-trade stays dead.
Like the Bush Administration, these freshmen seem mostly to be oriented toward promoting the fossil fuel industry, many of them coming from coal or oil states.
