Murkowski’s office said the senators will speak about “the economic, political, and social consequences of allowing energy insecurity to rise in America.”

Mark Mills, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, will host the event.

Murkowski and Scott have both railed against many of President Obama’s environmental policies, arguing they would increase energy costs for families and businesses.
