E-mail from T. Boones Pickens:
I have great news to share with you!
Today, Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) introduced the NAT GAS Act of 2011 to encourage the use of domestic natural gas to fuel vehicles. The legislation is the Senate's version of H.R. 1380, which has broad bi-partisan support in the House with 181 co-sponsors.
It is so encouraging to see Republicans and Democrats come together to put America first. I salute Senators Menendez, Burr, Chambliss and Majority Leader Reid for recognizing that we need a fiscally responsible energy policy that cuts dependence on foreign oil while creating American jobs, lifting our economy, enhancing our national security, and protecting our environment.
I hope the Senate will do what is unquestionably in America's best interest: seize this unique and powerful opportunity and pass this bill. I'll be in touch soon with next steps.
