Rep. Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement on President Obama's energy proposal:
"It comes as no surprise that the president plans to implement these changes without Congressional input and approval," said Roe. "While some American families are struggling to put food on the table, this misguided plan will raise energy costs, continue the president's war on the coal industry and cost billions of dollars. I agree that we must be good stewards of the environment, but this plan is not the answer."
Rep. Roe serves on the House Energy Action Team.
