“I thank Chairman Lamborn for inviting me to sit in on this hearing,” said Rep. Young.  “We heard from an excellent panel this morning who demonstrated what many Americans already know, which is that we can safely and efficiently develop our abundance of God-given resources in Alaska.  Fossil fuels are what run our trains, planes, trucks, ships, and cars and are the backbone of commerce in this country.  Yet instead of using what we have here at home, pumping money into our own economy, and creating jobs for our people, we send hundreds of millions of our dollars each year to foreign countries for their product instead.  This nonsense has to stop.  We need an energy policy, we need to do something, and we need to do it NOW!”

Testimony for today’s hearing was provided by:

Dan Sullivan
Commissioner
Alaska Department of Natural Resources

Richard Glenn
Arctic Slope Regional Corporation

David T. Lawrence
Executive Vice President-Exploration and Commercial
Shell Energy Resources Company

Cynthia Quarterman
Administrator
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration
U.S. Department of Transportation
