Hurt Outlines New Bills Dealing With Energy

They could be called hands-off energy bills. The House of Representatives has passed measures that Congressman Robert Hurt (R- Pittsylvania County) says will make it easier to get gas, coal, oil and other types of energy. Hurt (pictured) says one bill cuts down on regulation. Another would make it easier to extract energy sources from federally-owned land. Hurt was a Monday guest on the WINA Morning News and The Schilling Show.
