Speeding


fees could


go up...


again

Those caught speeding or
violating other traffic laws in
Taylor County could soon find
themselves paying an
additional $5.
The county commission is
considering the extra fee to
help und the traffic education
program conducted by the
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
(TCSO).
The Florida Legislature
enacted the Dori Slosberg
Driver Education Safety Act in
2002, authorizing counties to
add the fee to fund such
programs.
The act was named for the
daughter of former State Rep.
Irv Slosberg, who pushed for
the law's passage. Dori was 14
when she was killed in a car
accident.
During Monday
night's meeting, several
commissioners expressed
concern over adding an
additional fee to traffic fines
after the state had already
increased them earlier this
year, but the board ultimately
voted 4-0 to have County
Attorney Conrad Bishop draft
the ordinance and the county
advertise for a public hearing
at an upcoming commission
meeting.
It is unclear how much
money the extra fine would
raise.
Clerk of Courts Annie Mae
Murphy said she spoke with

22-year-old killed



Speed possible factor in crash


Speed could be a factor in an
accident that killed a 22-year-
old Greenville man Sunday---at
an intersection that claimed
another life more than a decade
ago in a similar motorcycle
crash.
Broderick Blue was
pronounced dead after being
transported from the scene at
Warner Avenue and Walnut
Street.
Perry Police Department Ptl.
Garrett Campbell is the
assigned traffic homicide
investigator and results are
pending the finalization of his
investigation.
The crash occurred around
4:30 p.m. as Blue was traveling
south on Warner Avenue. A
four-door Mercury car, driven
by Eric King, 35, was turning
onto Warner from Walnut
Street when Blue apparently
ran into the car.
Blue was ejected from the
motorcycle onto the roadway
after hitting the car. He was not
wearing a helmet.
The intersection at Warner
and Walnut is marked by a
three-way stop, with signs on
the north and southbound lanes
of Warner and a sign at Walnut
and Warner.


Deputies from the Taylor
County Sheriffs Office assisted
at the scene Sunday and "their
help was greatly appreciated,"
PPD Capt. Jamie Cruse said.


The investigation is on-
going.
The intersection was the
scene of another deadly
motorcycle crash more than 10


years ago. just two days before
Christmas, on Dec. 23, 1998.
Speed was a factor in that
crash, which killed Albert
Rivers, 29.


"The circumstances were
very similar. The motorcycle

The Perry Police Department and Taylor County Sheriff's Office secured the scene of a motorcycle crash
which claimed the life of a 22-year-old Greenville man Sunday.


A grand jury handed down
first degree murder
indictments--capital charges
which .could carry the death
penalty--Monday against Rufus
Lee Jr., 24, and Isaac Jackson
III, 30, for the Memorial Day
shooting death of Henry
Hughes Jr., 19.
Both men were also indicted
for robbery while armed (with a
firearm).
Additional charges of
attempted murder with a
firearm and possession of a
firearm by a felon were brought
against Lee.
The suspects will be formally
arraigned on the charges July
16.
Hughes was killed in what
investigators have called an
armed robbery at Daddy's
Place, located near the
intersection of Highway 98 and
U.S. 19. Also shot during the
robbery was Archie Jackson,
54.
Both Hughes and Jackson
were shot one time, Assistant
State Attorney Dave Phelps


said Tuesday.
Hughes was pronounced
dead at the scene while Jackson
was transported to an area
hospital for treatment.
Lee and Jackson fled the


scene the day of the shooting,
triggering a massive manhunt
by multiple agencies including
the U.S. Marshals.
They were caught separately
days later. (Jackson was

DMH awarded $100,000 grant


The good news continues at
Doctors' Memorial Hospital's
radiological department.
In addition to a new
computerized tomography
(CT) scanner, the department is
now home to a Discovery QRD
bone densitometry system
from Hologic, thanks to a


$100,000 grant from the
Florida Department of
Health.
According to DMH interim
CFO Bill Brynes, the capital
improvement grant allowed the
hospital to purchase the new
system as well as other
equipment for the hospital such


as pediatric beds.
Brynes said grants such as
the one awarded to DMH are
best "when you can find
something that you can afford
and will generate revenue and
provide services."
"Osteoporosis is a growing

Doctors' Memorial Hospital recently installed a Discovery QRD bone
densitometry system thanks to a grant from the Florida Department of Health.

worldwide," said DMH
Director of Imagining Services
Lyn Odom.
"The healthcare costs
associated with osteoporosis
are staggering, and the effect on
the patient's quality of life can
be devastating. Only about 10
percent of women over the age
of 65 have normal bone
mass. Seventy-seven percent
of American women
with osteoporosis are
undiagnosed-and therefore
untreated. Fortunately.
osteoporosis is detectable and
treatable. Testing is safe and
non-invasive."
The new bone densitometry
equipment "provides superb
image quality incorporating
computer-aided fracture
assessment to quantify
and display the degree of
vertebral compression, the best
diagnostic tool to support
early detection and treatment
of osteoporosis," she said.
The equipment has been in
place for the past two weeks at
DMH, but the first week was
devoted to training.
The testing is reimbursable
with Medicare, Medicaid and
private insurances. Odom

County

to revisit

Yates

Creek

ownership
The issue surrounding
the ownership of the Yates
Creek boat ramp and road
will once again be before
the Taylor County
Commission later this
month.
In June, commissioners
rejected, in a 3-1 vote, a
lease agreement for the
property with a group of
family members who own
some 220 acres
collectively referred to as
Yates Creek.
What wasn't settled,
however, is a decades-long
issue over whether the
roadway and boat ramp are
public or private property.
At the end of the board's
meeting Monday night,
when commissioners
regularly speak about
informational items not on
the agenda, Commissioner
Lonnie Houck brought up
the Yates Creek issue,
saying that he felt it had
been left in "limbo."
"I think we need to go
ahead and resolve this," he
said.
Commissioner Malcolm
Page concurred, adding
that the county could seek a
declaratory judgement
from the court. Such a
judgement would
determine the rights of the
parties without ordering
anything be done or
awarding damages.
County Attorney Conrad
Bishop, in previous
meetings, had suggested a
declaratory judgement as a
way to settle the issue.
Commissioner Mark
Wiggins also said he
wanted to see a resolution,
but he was not sure if the

several clerks from other
counties who noted that as the
fines have continued to rise, the
number of tickets issued in
their counties have fallen.
Murphy said she has not seen
a similar trend here yet.
Commissioner Malcolm
Page said that although he
supported traffic education, he
wasn't sure raising the fee was
the best way to fund the
program.
- . Bishop. and Murphy pointed
out that the Florida Legislature
raised many court and


registration fees in their latest
session, with Murphy calling
some "astronomical."
The two pointed out the
money raised by those
increases will go directly to the
state, not to the county.
County Administrator Jack
Brown praised the local traffic
education program, adding that
it was the TCSO which
requested the commission
consider the ordinance.
Currently the education
program is funded by the
county's general fund, which is
generated by local property
taxes, Brown said.
Page then said he "was


convinced," and motioned to
approve advertising for a public
hearing on the ordinance.
Commissioner Mark Wiggins
seconded and the measure
passed 4-0. Commissioner Pat
Patterson was not present at the
meeting due to a sickness in her
family.
If approved, the new
ordinance would create a
Taylor County Traffic
Education Fund. The money
raised would be placed in the
fund and "shall be used for
direct educational expenses and
shall not be used for
administrative expenses."
The TCSO's next driver class


will begin Monday, July 13,
from 1 to 5 p.m. with classroom
instruction at the Perry Police
Department (located at 211
South Washington St.).
Students will then complete the
eight-hour vehicle operation
activity on July 14 at the Perry-
Foley Airport from 8 a.m. to 4
p.m.
Those interested in the class
are asked to pick up an
application at the TCSO
located in the county
courthouse.

the class,,:contact TCSO Dep.
Edward Whiddon at 584-4225

county should instigate the suit.
He was the only commissioner
to vote against rejecting the
lease agreement last month.
"I would just like to see it
solved," Commission
Chairman Rudolph Parker said.
Commissioner Pat Patterson
was not present at the meeting
due to a sickness in the
family.
Another option
commissioners discussed
Monday was resuming county
maintenance of the roadway.
The county has not conducted
any maintenance of the
roadway since the late 1990s.
According to County
Administrator Jack Brown,
meeting minutes from that time
state the county entered into an
agreement with the family.
Brown said he has been unable
to find a copy of the agreement.
Since it was an informational
item and not on the agenda, the
board could not take any formal
action, but they did request that
Yates Creek be added to their
next meeting's agenda. That
meeting will be held Tuesday,
July 21, beginning at 6 p.m.
Debbie Casey, who has been


representing her family,
approached the commission in
April about the county leasing
the property to reduce, the
liability the family has should
anyone be hurt while using the
boat ramp.
When contacted Tuesday,
Casey said, "First, let me say
that the Clark family has at no
time been trying to close the
road at Yates Creek. In
actuality, we have been trying
to find a way to keep the road
open to the public, as it has
been for the last 60 years,
without the liability that my
family now faces.
"We continue to be open to
negotiations on how to resolve
this problem; however, we feel
that the county's lease for
$1 per year of the 52 acres of
our property at Yates Creek
would be the most sensible
solution. The lease agreement
that we presented to the county
commission specifically
excluded any claim to
ownership of the road by
either the county or the Clark
family.
"This lease would allow the
county to maintain the road so
that it is safe for public use, as
well as it would relieve our
family of liability, since the


county's umbrella insurance
policy would then cover the
property. Although we've tried,
my family has been unable to
find a company who will
underwrite a policy for us since
we are allowing the public to
use the property.
"I might also add, that I made
it clear to the commissioners at
at least three separate meetings,
that for the past five years, we
have been working on finding
state or federal funds so that the
property could be purchased
and made into a state or county
park. That is what my family--
both present and deceased--
wants to see happen, and we
are dedicated to continuing to
seek funds to make this happen
in the future. In the meantime,
however, we would like to be
able to leave the road open for
public use without the liability
involved."
For the past several months,
the county and the family--and
their attorneys--have worked to
find a suitable agreement that
would not disallow either party


from claiming ownership of the
land in question.
In April, the commission
voted 3-1 (with Patterson
providing the sole nay vote;
Commission Malcolm Page
was not present at the meeting)
to move forward with drafting
the lease agreement and have
County Attorney Conrad
Bishop work with the family's
attorney, Michael Smith, to add
language so it would not
prohibit either side from
claiming ownership in a court
case.
When the new language was
presented to the commission
last month, Houck and Parker
continued their objections.
Patterson said she had already
voted against the lease once
before and would do so again.
Houck made a motion to
reject the agreement with
Patterson seconding. The
measured passed 3-1 with
Wiggins voting against. Page
was unable to attend the
meeting due to a conflicting
obligation.

Attorney General Bill
McCollum and Florida's Public
Counsel J.R Kelly have issued
a consumer advisory on
upcoming hearings to be held
by I the Public Service
Commission (PSC) on a
proposed $500 million annual
rate increase by Progress
Energy of Florida.
A series of nine hearings,
held so customers can share
their concerns and opinions
about the proposed increase, is
currently underway. The
hearing for this area will be
held Thursday, July 9, at 10
a.m., at the Live Oak City Hall
council chambers (101 White
Avenue SE in Live Oak).
"This proposed rate increase
is concerning and will be
difficult for utility customers to
bear," said McCollum, whose
office has intervened before the
PSC in the rate increase
hearings.
The Attorney General's
Office will be represented at
the meeting, as will the public
counsel. Representatives from
the Florida Retail Federation,
Florida Industrial Power Users
Group and AARP are also
expected to attend the hearings
to voice the concerns of
Floridians and their opposition
to the increase.
"Progress Energy wants a
12.54 percent profit, at a time
when the economy is suffering,
unemployment is high and
most folks are just trying to
keep their head above water,"
said Kelly, who represents
Florida consumers in utilities
cases before the PSC.
These hearings will be the
only opportunities for
customers to personally
address the PSC about Progress
Energy service and the


proposed rate increases.
Customers who cannot
appear at the hearing can share
their concerns with the PSC
at its Web site,
www.psc.state.fl.us/about/
contact/form.aspx.
The company's request will
be reviewed by the PSC later
this year and, if approved, will
go into effect on customer bills
beginning in January 2010.


Refund


ordered

The Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) has
directed Progress Energy
Florida (Progress) to refund
more than $7.6 million to its
customers for excessive fuel
costs in 2006 and 2007.
The utility serves more than
1.6 million customers in 35
counties throughout Florida
and uses coal to generate
electricity at its Crystal River
Units 4 and 5 (CR 4 and CR5).
In 2007, the PSC ordered
Progress to refund more than
$13.8 million to its customers
for excessive fuel costs paid
from 2003 to 2005. The refund
was a result of the company
burning a more expensive coal
blend. The PSC's decision was
an offshoot of that earlier case
and the ongoing review of fuel
costs.
Although Progress argued
that its coal purchases for CR4
and CR5 were prudent and
saved customers $3.1 million
during 2006 and 2007, the PSC
disagreed.

Bulldogs use 7-on-7



games to 'get better'


Taylor County High football
Coach Shane Boggs was
quite pleased with his team's
performance in the 7-on-7 Big
Man Challenge Tournament
recently held at Valdosta State
University.
According to Boggs, the
Bulldogs' skill players were close
in three of four 7-on-7 games and
the line finished second in the
linemen challenge.
"Our linemen had a great day
and our skill guys managed to
stay close. Most importantly,
our team was competing against
some very good people and they
are now using the opportunity to
get better," he said.
Taylor County is slated to
travel to Wakulla this Saturday
for another 7-on-7 tourney
before packing up for camp in
Knoxville, Tenn., July 13-15.
"We will compete in 7-on-7


games and linemen challenges
in Knoxville but we will also
benefit from the team-building
that goes along with attending a
camp Lke this," Boggs said.
The 'Dogs will wrap up pre-
season tournaments on July 25
when they travel to Tallahassee
for a tournament and camp at
FSU. In the meantime, the team
is working out three days a week
as part of Boggs' 22-day summer
workout program.

Soccer camp


"The purpose of these
workouts is to improve strength
and speed as well as injury
prevention," the first-year coach
said.
With the beginning of fall
practice just a month away,
Boggs is encouraged that the
work his team has done this
summer will pay off in the fall.
The Bulldogs open the 2009
season on Friday, Aug. 28 at
Mayo.

set for August

Burger King's support of the Bulldog football team's upcoming football camp trip to
Tennessee. Johnson and Boggs are flanked by future Bulldog football players John

Kids Safety Day planned

this Saturday at Wal-Mart
The Perry Police Department and Taylor County Sheriffs
Office will host a "Kids Safety Day" this Saturday, July 11, from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Wal-Ilart.
Free fingerprinting will be offered along with "simple DNA
kits that parents can take home with them," organizers said.
School supplies will be given away and drawings will be held
for door prizes.
Dr. Ronald Emerick, who helped sponsor the event through
donations, will also be on hand.

At T.E.A. Party


Hundreds say they are


'Taxed Enough Already'


The T.E.A (Taxed Enough
Already) party held on the 4th
of July at Forest Capital Park in
Perry was a huge success,
organizers said Monday. "The
heat-was high and so were the
patriotic emotions."
Hundreds of people from
seven counties gathered to
listen to speakers "sound the
alarm" about out-of-control
government spending, TEA
Party organizer Bob Root of
Perry said.
"Protesters of all ages and
political beliefs waved signs
and signed petitions
demanding 'We are Taxed
Enough Already'.
"The awesome turnout in
Perry and across the country
shows that hard working, tax-
paying Americans have had
enough from government
officials that view themselves
as the 'ruling class' and no
longer accountable to the
voters.
"We allowed no public
officials to talk today and 'spin'
their policies. We chose to have
well-informed citizens from
all walks of life speak about
their concerns regarding the
direction of ever-expanding
government agendas."
The TEA Party was held for
residents of Jefferson,
Madison, Suwannee, Lafayette,
Dixie, Levy and Taylor
counties.
Guest speakers included Paul
Tanner, a community outreach
leader for various faith-based
charities. Also, a Second
Amendment advocate spoke on
the importance df actively
defending Second Amendment
rights.
Other speakers included


Richard Schwab, Pastor
Jeremy Lundy and Penny
Staffney, the city's finance
director.
Maisie Wilson, a 17-year-old
high school senior, brought
down the house with her
acappella rendition of "The
Star Spangled Banner."
Music, food and gallons of
tea were served.
The highlight of the event
was the unveiling of a mobile.
billboard which is touring
North Florida gathering
signatures and will be
presented to the Florida
Congressional delegation in
Washington, D.C. on Sept. 12.
"All of the speakers urged
voters to continue speaking out
until Congress and the
President hear us loud and;
clear. They reminded everyone
that 'we the people' can
influence our government
-when we speak out. After all,.
our ancestors did--and so can
we."


Penny Staffney was
among the guest
speakers.

B-2 Taco Ti


mes July 8, 2009


Boyd, Congress should


try again on energy bill


Our good friend and U.S.
Congressman Allen Boyd was in
town last week to bring us up
to date on the proceedings in
Washington.
Much of his report dealt with his
support of the Waxman-Markey
bill, also known as the cap-and-
trade bill, or, as Boyd referred to it
"an energy bill." It recently passed
the House by a narrow margin
and now moves on to the Senate
before it can become law.
While Boyd wholeheartedly
supported the bill, we couldn't
disagree more.
First of all, the underlying
premise of the entire bill is to
substantially reduce carbon from
the burning of fossil fuels (oil,
coal, natural gas) because of its
contribution to global warming
which promoters say will devastate
the earth and mankind.
We have always been skeptical
that man has such powers over
the earth's complex climate and
we are still awaiting that debate
in Congress.
So, to pass a law based on a highly
debatable premise, especially one
so potentially expensive, is not


good governance. It is pure folly.
Secondly, Boyd says he
approached the bill with the
assumption that our current
energy policy is not working, that
we are too dependent on foreign
sources for our energy needs.
We agree with the congressman's
"approach" but strongly disagree
with how to proceed.
Boyd's approach through the
cap-and-trade bill would be to
penalize America's industries that
produce or rely upon fossil fuels
and reward those that do not.
To reach energy independence,
we would prefer a policy that
utilizes our vast natural resources
while giving incentives for research
into new, less expensive ones.
Much of our vast oil reserves are
now considered off limits by many
in Washington. And even though
we have hundreds of years worth
of coal in the ground, that seems
to be off limits too.
Making energy more expensive
to homeowners and industries
while fattening the central
government is no kind of energy
policy. Washington, and Boyd,
need to give this another try.

Midweek Muddle


In the course of a marriage--
any marriage--there are endless
opportunities to assault one's
spouse.
On our better days, we ignore
those opportunities.
On our worst days, we seize one.
So, admitting that character flaw
as my own, I confirm that I'm not a
hopeless romantic about marriage. I
view it realistically as a chosen path
which requires everything you've
pledged to do in front of a minister
or justice of the peace, and about
every other good quality you can
muster up, too. Nobody ever said
it was easy.
In that light, it's not difficult to
be disappointed these days by what
other people are doing to their own
marriages, or someone else's.
But I don't think I've ever been
as aghast as I was last week when I
heard the South Carolina governor
--who threw a grenade on his own
marriage--quoted as saying he was
"trying to fall in love again with his
wife."
Excuse me for a moment while I
gag.
Are we supposed to be impressed
by his nobility?
It will be a happy day if I learn
that this public servant has been
misquoted, but after he's openly
referred to his mistress as his
"soulmate" and lied to his staff
about a hiking trip in order to get
to her, I'm guessing the quote was
accurately reported.
And I cannot begin to tell you how
angry I am at this man I've never
met. Why do I care?
His wife may be a witch; his life
may be miserable. But don't stand


. Governor


By SUSAN H. LINCOLN
before cameras and microphones
and say, "I am trying to fall in love
again with my wife." I'm in no way
advocating domestic battery, but it
might have hurt less if he had hit
his wife... and then she could have
had him arrested.
It's also a horrible legacy for their
children who, as we all know, will
either understand that quote today
or come to have it circle in the deep
recesses of their young minds while
they process it.
I wouldn't let this man govern my
septic tank, much less my state,
but if the good people of South
Carolina are that forgiving, God
bless them.
For I know I should be.
I know I'm a horrible person too.
But I'm privately horrible and
try not to throw discredit upon an
entire state.
Surely the governor needs to be
forgiven. We all do.
Surely he's not the first public
official to fall from grace.
And he absolutely won't be the
last.
Surely he has abilities which make
him a good gubernatorial choice.
Surely Mrs. Sanford never
expected this kind of public shame
when she agreed to "for better or
worse." Does anybody?
From this day forward, all I will
ever remember about the governor
of South Carolina is that he's trying
to fall in love again with his wife,
and I can't help but hope that it
doesn't work out for him.
For she deserves better.
And he deserves his soulmate...
until, that is, his next soulmate
comes along.

SByd Repo te on energy

The B�yd Report: bill explained


By REP. ALLEN BOYD
I approach the energy debate
with the basic assumption that
our current energy policy is not
working. Nothing illustrated
this more than the energy crisis
of last summer when gas prices
in Florida climbed over $4 a
gallon. This spike in energy
prices was one of the major
contributing factors of the
current recession, making it
clear that our dependence on
foreign oil is inextricably linked
to our economic future. We
are dangerously dependent on
foreign sources of energy, and this
dependence is expensive. Our
country sends over $440 billion
overseas each year to buy crude
oil from foreign countries. If we
continue this practice, we will
forever be beholden to foreign
countries for our energy needs
and our economic well-being
will be at risk. Now is the time to
move to American-made energy.
To chart this path to energy
independence, a new, balanced
energy policy is needed -one that
keeps costs low for North Florida
families, invests in renewable
and alternative energy sources,
and promotes innovative energy
technologies that will create new
American jobs. I gave a lot of
thought to the energy bill that
the House of Representatives
passed last week, and I am
convinced that this bill does all
of those things and is essential
to our region's and our country's
economic future.
One of the biggest
misconceptions about the energy
bill is that it would impose
thousands of dollars in costs on
the average household. This is
simply not true. The nonpartisan
Congressional Budget Office
analyzed the bill and concluded
it would cost 48 cents a day for
families at its height in 2020
- around the cost of a postage
stamp per day. These estimates
did not even include the savings
that would come from upgrades
to the energy grid, more efficient
,homes, and advanced appliance
efficiency standards.
Many also complain about
the costs associated with the
cap and trade program in the


bill that addresses carbon
emissions. Those who do not
believe in climate change or that
the world population is affecting
climate change will disagree with
me, but I believe that failure to
begin reducing carbon emissions
will leave a diminished.
economically vulnerable world
for our grandchildren. What is
indisputable is that our future
on the current path leaves us
with zero control over energy

Allen Boyd
prices. American-made energy
will be critical to our country's
economic future, to controlling
energy costs, and to maintaining
out' quality of life.
The cap and trade program
would require utility companies
to reduce carbon emissions by
17 percent by 2020. Under
this program, companies
would be required to reduce
their emissions or purchase
allowances in order to exceed
these caps. This will incentivize
large utility companies to shift
toward clean coal technologies
and other renewable sources
of energy. Rural electric
cooperatives (co-ops) in North
Florida would receive free
allowances to help offset energy
costs and keep prices affordable.
Another key component of the
energy bill is the establishment
of a reasonable new standard
for utility companies. Under
the bill, the major Florida utility
providers would be required
to generate 20 percent of their
energy from renewable sources
by the year 2020, while tc-
ops, which serve many North
Floridians, would be exempt
from meeting this standard. The
state of Florida could also lower


the 20 percent threshold on large
utility companies by requesting
that 8 percent of the standard
be met through conservation
measures, such as energy
efficiency improvements. These
standards are designed so that
the consumer benefits from the
gradual incorporation of locally-
derived energy and reasonable,
corresponding rates.
For utility companies to
meet the remaining 12 percent
renewable energy requirement,
the energy bill expands biomass
and nuclear programs - both
critical aspects of Florida's
energy capabilities. I fought hard
to make sure that biomass and
nuclear programs were included
and promoted in the energy
bill. This is a significant win
for our state and a large reason
for my support of the bill. Both
biomass and nuclear energy are
a vital part of Florida's energy
future, and investments in these
areas will create new jobs and
new industry in our state.
In addition to biomass and
nuclear, the energy bill invests
in clean coal. Our country has
approximately 27 percent of
the world's coal supply. Any
workable energy policy must
recognize the substantial role
that coal will play in creating
new jobs and making our country
energy independent, and the
energy bill does this by investing
in technologies that will help
make coal cleaner.
We are a long way from
enacting a new, national energy
policy into law. The Senate also
must draft an energy bill, and
then the differences between the
House and Senate bills must be
reconciled. While the House-
passed energy bill may not be
perfect, it reflects our long-term
energy needs and responds to
our collective responsibility to
ensure a better world for future
generations.
As Congress continues to
move forward and develop a
national energy policy, I will be
looking for a final bill that works
for our state and sets the stage for
long-term economic prosperity
and a secure nation that is energy
independent.
