Alexander Statement on President’s Energy Announcement

Posted on March 31, 2010

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today issued the following statement on the president’s energy announcement:  

“As we learned in the health care debate, it’s important to read the fine print before signing up.  While opposed to a high-cost, economy-wide cap-and-trade energy program, Republicans have long advocated a low-cost, clean energy plan based on offshore exploration, nuclear power, electric cars, and energy research and development.”
