Senate Democratic Leaders Comment on Henry’s Plan to Invest in Bio-Fuels Project in Ardmore

Statement by Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan

“The history of Oklahoma’s energy industry is filled with innovation and imagination. For nearly a century, Oklahomans have led the world in new technologies in energy exploration and production. In a changing and volatile world is important for Oklahoma to invest in the development of new forms of energy, including bio-fuels. I applaud the Governor for coming forward with a bold initiative to keep Oklahoma among the world leaders in energy.”

Statement by Senate Co-Appropriations Chairman Johnnie Crutchfield

“Investing in the development of new energy technologies is important not only for Oklahoma, but for America and our planet. The legislature and Oklahoma State University made a sizeable investment in the Noble Foundation’s work last session. I look forward to working with the governor to further support the foundation’s research and development of alternative fuels.”
