Daines to Perry: I’m Confident You’ll Restore the Balance Between Fossil Fuels and Renewables

‘Thank you for considering this nomination’


DAINES: "I have complete confidence truly in that you’re going to work to restore this balance that I think the American people seek between fossil fuels and renewable energy investments and regulation. As they probably would say in Texas, as we'd say in Montana, it's a little -- it's a blend of George Strait and John Denver. That is -- that is  a malady that we need right now in this nation and I think that's been lacking frankly in President Obama’s Energy Department. And you'll, I think, restore that balance. So thank you for considering this nomination."
