Live with Railroad Commission Chairman Michael Williams
You’ll recall his great speech at the YCT State Convention that motivated us activists, alumni and friends to continue fighting for conservatism.
His topic of conversation today is energy and it’s a big one here at RPT.
Railroad Commission Chairman Michael Williams is chatting with us about electricity and transportation. He says we have to move to the utilization of clean coal for power. We also have to expand the utilization of nuclear power for energy.

I am liveblogging right here with the www.rightonline.com booth with Will Lutz of the Lone Star Report.
We’re about to listen to Senator John Cornyn. He’s kicking it off by discussing high gas prices and says Congress needs to be part of the solution. We should be less dependent on countries like Venezuela, he says.
"The problem we primarily have is supply….we’re going to need the oil we can produce here domestically in the near future," he elabortates.
