Cornyn Votes to Confirm Perry as Secretary of Energy

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) released the following statement after former Texas Governor Rick Perry was confirmed as Secretary of the Department of Energy.  He also spoke on the Senate Floor before the vote, and video of that speech can be downloaded here.


“Under Governor Perry’s leadership, the Texas economy soared. And thanks to his commonsense approach to regulation and support for thoughtful innovation, Texas became a state where all energy producers could thrive. Under Secretary Perry’s guidance, I have no doubt the Department of Energy will pursue an all of the above strategy that will lead to the next great era of American energy.” 

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees.
