Senator David Perdue Votes To Confirm New Energy Secretary, Governor Rick Perry

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) voted to confirm former Texas Governor Rick Perry as Secretary of the Department of Energy:

“Governor Perry is a long-time advocate of American energy independence and he will play a key role in President Trump’s plans to develop our nation’s many energy resources. Last Congress, President Obama vetoed the Keystone Pipeline, after Congress approved the project with a bipartisan majority in both chambers. President Trump is already translating his promises for increased American energy into results, and I will continue working with him and Secretary Perry to unleash our full energy potential.”
