Statement of Chairman Joseph T. Kelliher on the President's State of the Union Address

"I applaud President Bush for his leadership and his steadfast recognition that addressing the Nation's energy needs must be one of the country's top priorities. We have been fortunate that this winter has been mild for most of the country. Nevertheless, world events are validating the President's call to build upon his 2001 National Energy Policy and the comprehensive energy legislation he signed into law last summer. Our nation must build the energy infrastructure necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.

"On Thursday, February 2, at 10:00am, the Commission will convene a special public meeting to further implement the mandates of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and make America's energy infrastructure more reliable."
