Gardner Named Chairman of the Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) today was named Chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy. Gardner served on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources during the 114th Congress, and on the Energy and Commerce Committee while he represented Colorado’s fourth district in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Energy Subcommittee’s jurisdiction includes oversight, legislative and regulatory responsibilities for energy production and distribution and research and development for new technologies.

“I’m honored to be named Chairman of the Energy Subcommittee and thank Chairman Murkowski for entrusting me with this important assignment,” said Gardner. “A strong and responsible energy policy is critical to unleashing our energy potential, and I look forward to using my new position to advance policy that benefits Coloradans and all Americans. I have long advocated for an all-of-the-above energy strategy, and that includes pursuing renewables, such as wind, solar, and geothermal, as well as conventional sources. I look forward to working with members of both parties toward solutions that reflect a balanced approach to achieving energy security.”
