Begich Statement on Senate Vote to Confirm Ernest Moniz as Energy Secretary


“Wise Choice to lead the Department of Energy”

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich made the following statement after the Senate unanimously confirmed Ernest Moniz as the next U.S. Energy Secretary:

“Ernest Moniz is a wise choice to lead the Department of Energy.  As a leading professor and former Department of Energy official, he brings the experience, reputation, and skills to advance an all-of-the-above approach to our nation’s energy policy.”

“I look forward to bringing him to Alaska and discussing our unique challenges and opportunities. From high energy costs to the untapped economic impacts of responsibly developing Alaska’s vast oil and gas resources, we will show him that no other state is quite like Alaska.”
