HOUSTON, May 4, 2016 – Calvetti Ferguson hosted its annual Energy Forum on today, which featured a panel with U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and David Porter, Chairman of the Railroad Commission of Texas.

Each panelist brought a unique perspective to the table. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Chairman Porter: “There’s no way that renewables are going to produce enough energy to replace hydrocarbons.”
  • Congressman Brady: “We ought to be encouraging all types of energy…technology can help.”
  • Congressman Brady: “It isn’t a game changer today, but long-term it will be,” on the lift of the ban on crude oil exportation.
  • Chairman Porter: “If the proposals go through, it will have a negative impact on the [railroad] commission,” on the proposals set forth by the Sunset Commission.

The crowd gathered to hear what energy could hold for the nation and for Texas.

U.S. Congressman, Kevin Brady (R), addresses the crowd after a question from Jim Calvetti (L).

Railroad Commission of Texas Chairman, David Porter (R), listens to Congressman Brady’s comments.
