Governor Rick Perry was the keynote speaker at our 2014 Governor’s Energy Summit and he used his address to highlight America’s wealth of energy resources and urge our nation’s leaders to allow states to capitalize on economic opportunities.
“Many states are blessed,” explained Perry. “They’re blessed to have these natural resources below the soil. But without the leadership, that’s exactly where those resources are going to stay.”
He also went on to explain how energy can be a weapon in the hand of aggressors. It is Perry’s belief that if energy is going to be used as a weapon, then America needs to have the largest arsenal and it should use that arsenal to set bullied nations free.
