366 Dirksen [Senate Office Building] 10:00 AM, Thursday, Jan. 19th
The Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will hold a hearing on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. EST in Room 366 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.
The purpose of the hearing is to consider the nomination of the Honorable Rick Perry to be the Secretary of Energy.
The nomination hearing will be webcast live on the committee’s website. Witness testimony will be available online immediately before the start of the hearing.
[Beyond Nuclear has prepared a backgrounder on a blatant conflict of interest, involving the Waste Control Specialists radioactive waste dump in Texas, that should disqualify him from serving as Energy Secretary. Please review the list of ENR Committee members. If one of your U.S. Senators is on there, please urge him/her to ask direct questions to Rick Perry about this, and to block his confirmation due to this matter.]
