As 2020 came to a close, members of the Congressional Western Caucus sought to look toward the future. With the United States’ energy security in tumult and the economy in slowly recovering from the pandemic, Western Caucus Members recently joined the Western Caucus Foundation at the Fort Worth Zoo for the annual winter policy roundtable.
The roundtable discussion included a safe, informative rig tour of the Ensign’s T129 operating in the Barnett Shale.
The purpose of the annual event is to foster discussion on a few of the many policy accomplishments from the past year. From modernizing out-of-date regulations to spurring innovation and economic development to ensuring that local voices are heard on public lands decisions, forums like these are important for our political leaders to collaborate and continue the work of advancing the priorities of Caucus Members and the varying interests of the districts they represent.
