Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions is pleased to announce that Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and Representative Chris Gibson (R-NY) will be joining us for “Waking Up to America’s Future”, a conversation about free market energy solutions and the policy outlook for the 114th Congress. Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions is co-hosting the event, taking place this Thursday, December 4, along with Concord 51 and the Conservation Leadership Council.
“We are honored to have Senator Ayotte and Representative Gibson join us for an important conversation about how we can leverage America’s diverse energy resources and technological innovation to grow the economy and create jobs, while also demonstrating environmental responsibility,” said James Dozier, Executive Director of CRES.
“Senator Ayotte has been a leader in promoting responsible energy policies, driving efforts to ensure our country uses our abundant energy resources in an efficient way. And Representative Gibson has been working across the aisle to stand up for pragmatic solutions to our nation’s energy and environmental needs.
“Together, they have shown that conservatives can be leaders in encouraging innovation in new energy technologies that create high-paying American jobs, grow our economy, and preserve our climate.”
Recent polling conducted by TargetPoint Consulting on behalf of CRES shows that this is an issue the American people care about. 83% of voters – including 82% of Republicans – believe that energy policy, specifically the exploration and development of both traditional and renewable energy sources, should be a high priority for congress. Moreover, 83% of voters agree that “our nation’s energy policy should provide incentives to clean energy sources like nuclear, natural gas, wind, solar and hydro.”
Sen. Ayotte and Rep. Gibson will be joined by a panel of thought leaders and industry practitioners. To learn more about this exciting event, click here.
