WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Gov. Rick Perry as Secretary for the U.S. Department of Energy:

“First of all, my congratulations to Governor Perry who I think is an excellent choice – it’s too bad it took this long to get him confirmed. He’ll do a great job because he has incredible experience managing a massive bureaucracy as the Governor of Texas. Obviously, he clearly understands energy and energy policy, and perhaps most importantly, how good research and development can actually bring environmental improvements while at the same time saving our energy industry. Again, congratulations to him. I’m grateful the Senate finally got around to confirming him, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”
