Getting Natural Gas Right a Priority
Senator Ron Wyden, The Hill
As the seventh chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, I could not be more excited to step up to the challenge of strengthening U.S. energy policy.
It’s been five years since Congress last passed a major energy bill. Over that time, natural-gas prices have dropped nearly in half, the amount of wind power installed here has more than doubled to 50 gigawatts and U.S. greenhouse gas emissions have actually fallen. Most significantly, the goal of U.S. energy independence has gone from being a pipe dream to something that experts are predicting will become reality in just a few years.
