CHEYENNE — Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., has been appointed chairman of a U.S. House subcommittee.
She will chair the energy subcommittee under the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
“As I approached the 113th Congress, I set my sights on committees that afforded me the best opportunity to represent the State and the State’s interests,” she said.
“This subcommittee’s focus on the science of energy development and use is a perfect fit. In recent years, we have seen a proliferation of opinions and Hollywood fiction masquerading as science. As representative to the second largest energy producing state in the country, I am looking forward to the oversight responsibilities incumbent upon this subcommittee, and to the task of ensuring sound science is the basis for every discussion on domestic energy production.”
She said she looks forward to ensuring that sound science is the basis for discussion on domestic energy production.
