Vodcast: Rep. Nick Lampson on Energy

By December 13, 2007America's Business, Energy

With Congress coming down to the wire for action on any kind of energy legislation, this week’s video podcast of “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick” features an interview with Representative Nick Lampson (D-TX).

Lampson chairs the House Science Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Environment, and in the vodcast, he explains his reason for opposing the House-passed version of energy legislation: ““The bill itself takes away important incentives for oil companies which will not only lead to job loss, but will also discourage energy providers from continuing important research and development activities.”

NAM President John Engler also provides his “The Last Word” commentary, praising the Senate passge of the U.S.-Peru Free Trade Agreement.
