Representative Graves Will Bring a Balanced & Informed Voice to House Climate Change Committee
Washington, D.C. – NOIA President Randall Luthi released the following statement after Representative Garret Graves (R-LA) was named the Ranking Member of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis:
“NOIA strongly endorses the selection of Congressman Graves to be Ranking Member of the Select Committee on the Climate Crises. This Committee will be particularly prone to hyperbole and uber-scrutiny from all sides of climate and energy issues. Congressman Graves has shown that he is thorough, thoughtful and balanced. Like all Louisianans, he fully understands that energy development and protection of the environment are compatible and feasible. He brings a great deal of environmental and energy knowledge to the committee.”
