The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to announce the launch of a new speaker series, Energy in America. This series will feature congressional and state-level perspectives on the energy issues that matter most in various regions across the country. Additionally, Energy in America will highlight the social and economic impacts of energy and the challenges facing policymakers as they attempt to harness U.S. energy resources to create and foster economic opportunities.
We are very pleased to launch this series with The Honorable Lisa Murkowski, United States Senator from Alaska, and The Honorable Maria Cantwell, United States Senator from Washington. As Chairman and Ranking Member, respectively, of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, Senators Murkowski and Cantwell are uniquely positioned to provide a view from their states and of U.S. energy policy.
