Sen. Heller’s energy priorities list is short: ‘Lower gasoline prices’

“I have already supported an all-of-the-above strategy,” he said, echoing common GOP calls to boost production of oil-and-gas and alternative energies. “I will continue to support an all of the above strategy.”

Heller said he has not yet had discussions with Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), the energy committee’s top Republican.

Burr was appointed to the influential Senate Finance Committee Wednesday to replace Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), the Finance member who recently resigned from the Senate. Heller was appointed to the Senate May 3.
