Inhofe Statement on Perry for Energy Secretary

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), today released a statement in support of President-elect Trump's announcement of his intention to nominate Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry to be Energy Secretary:

“Rick Perry is an excellent choice to lead the Department of Energy,” Inhofe said.  “Perry understands the abundance of our domestic energy resources and what it takes to power our complex and growing economy. I am confident that under his leadership, the DOE will be right sized and focused intently on its twin goals of national security and energy independence. American economic dominance cannot be achieved without our continued responsible use of natural gas, oil, coal, and nuclear resources. I congratulate my good friend Rick Perry on his nomination and look forward to working with him.”
