Sen. King to serve on Senate energy panel  

Credit:  WMTW | Dec 12, 2014 | www.wmtw.com ~~

U.S. Sen. Angus King will serve on the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources during the 114th Congress.

The Independent senator made the announcement Friday. He says the appointment will give him “the opportunity to fight for Maine’s energy future,” as well as to push for the use of cleaner energy and the protection of natural resources. The committee is responsible for national energy policy and national parks and federal lands.

King helped found a wind power company after serving as Maine’s governor and got out of the business before becoming senator.

He will also serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Senate Budget Committee and Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. He is a returning member of those committees. King caucuses with Democrats.
