Latta to Join House Republican Leadership in Indianapolis, Indiana and
San Luis Obispo, California to Discuss Solutions to America's Energy
Challenges

WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), a member of the
House Republican American Energy Solutions Group (AESG) will participate
in two hearings in Indianapolis, Indiana and San Luis Obispo, California
this week with leading energy experts to discuss solutions to America's
energy challenges.

The AESG will be hosting several summits across the country this week in
order to develop policy initiatives to lower energy prices for American
families and small businesses, and create energy independence for the
American people.

"I am honored to join House Republican Leadership for these important
hearings in Indiana and California. Now more than ever, the United
States needs a sensible energy policy that includes alternative and
renewable energy, in addition to expanding the exploration and recovery
of our own natural resources. I look forward to hearing from the
witness panels to gather additional information and ideas on how
Congress can implement such a policy," Latta stated.
