Tipton to Chair Hearing on New Energy Paradigm

Colorado witness to testify

WASHINGTON—On Thursday, June 20th, at 10:00 a.m. (EDT), the Small Business Subcommittee on Agriculture, Energy and Trade, under the chairmanship of Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO), will conduct a hearing titled The New Energy Paradigm: Its Potential for Small Businesses and the Economy. The purpose of the hearing is to examine the economic benefits of increased responsible oil and natural gas production in the United States, with a special emphasis on how it could benefit small businesses.

Moffat County Commissioner Chuck Grobe will be among the witnesses testifying at the hearing.

“Recent changes in technology and market fundamentals have greatly increased the oil and natural gas production potential of the United States,” said Subcommittee Chairman Tipton. “In addition to reducing imports, the development of these resources will provide a reliable and affordable source of energy that will help generate millions of jobs outside of the oil and gas sector, especially among small businesses.  Increased domestic oil and natural gas production is a critical component of an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy that not only promotes energy independence, but will make American small businesses more competitive in the global market place.”
