“Smart, sensible policies that encourage new growth and innovation in energy are critical to the state’s future and ushering in a new and long-lasting era of energy abundance.  Constructive dialogue and common-sense solutions on energy will benefit Alabama’s businesses and our greatest asset in economic development – our citizens.”
