Lt. Governor Treadwell Named to National Energy Policy Committee
August 20, 2013, Anchorage, AK – Lt. Governor Mead Treadwell has been appointed to serve on the State Strategies in Energy Committee, a national policy committee for the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA). The energy committee presents a forum for lieutenant governors to explore factors related to energy and the environment.
“I’m honored to serve NLGA and my fellow lieutenant governors in this capacity,” Lt. Gov. Treadwell said. “As Alaskans, we know energy. We know what it takes to develop resources responsibly. And we know how vital both fossil fuels and renewable energy sources are to our state’s economy, and the national economy as well.”
“Energy issues impact everything from jobs and manufacturing and the price at the pump to water and world security,” said NLGA Director Julia Hurst. “Energy has been a top issue for all lieutenant governors for years and this committee will facilitate the continued exchange of shared experience and insight on the topic. This role recognizes Lt. Governor Treadwell as an expert contact for NLGA and to his peers on energy issues,” said Hurst.
NLGA is the professional association providing research and issue exchange opportunities to the officeholders first in line of succession to governor in all 50 states and the U.S. territories.
