Chairman Smitherman to Speak at 2012 Gulf Coast Energy Summit with Speaker Newt Gingrich, Senator Rick Santorum, and Governor Phil Bryant
Chairman Barry T. Smitherman will be a featured speaker at the 2012 Gulf Coast Energy Summit in Biloxi, Mississippi. Thousands are confirmed to attend what will be a lively and in-depth discussion on national energy issues with presidential candidates and sector leaders from the federal, state, and local level.
“I am eager take our message of safely increasing our domestic production. I will highlight the dangers of federal overregulation, and will contrast the success of Texas energy policies with the failure of President Obama’s,” Smitherman said.
“Energy production is a driving force of the nation’s economy and we must continue to push back against politically-motivated regulations that are not based on science or fact. The Gulf Coast Energy Summit is a terrific forum to demonstrate how Texas’ reasonable and responsible regulatory climate allows energy production to flourish.”
Confirmed participants include Republican Presidential candidates Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and Senator Rick Santorum, as well as Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and Alabama Governor Robert Bentley. Additional representatives from the industry and state and local government will also be in attendance.
