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.
