Senate Western Caucus pushes energy legislation

The newly formed Senate Western Caucus introduced legislation that "encourages development and the use of all energy resources, including wind, nuclear, oil, natural gas and clean coal," according to a short note in the Casper (WY) Star-Tribune.

The caucus is comprised of Republicans from Arizona, Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Kansas, Nebraska, and Louisiana.

Caucus chair U.S. Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo, is quoted as saying,
the caucus opposes federal intrusion in the everyday lives of Americans and opposes legislation that pushes economic progress through huge spending and strict environmental regulations.
