“I continue to support reporting a balanced and comprehensive energy bill from the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. In this regard, I have been meeting with Committee members on both sides of the aisle and with the Administration to develop a consensus that can move us forward. I hope to continue to work with the Administration and with other members of the committee on a bipartisan basis. I will not agree, though, to attempts to force through a one-sided energy bill or to short-circuit Senate consideration of these important issues.” # # #
