Rep. Greg Bonnen Appointed to Energy Council

State Rep. Greg Bonnen, R-Friendswood, was appointed to the Energy Council by House 
 
Speaker Joe Straus, Bonnen’s office announced. The Energy Council is a nonprofit, 
 
nonpartisan organization of professional and educational societies aimed to serve the 
 
energy industry.
 
 
The Energy Council works to facilitate cooperation in national energy policy matters 
 
among several energy-producing states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, 
 
Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming, plus the province of Alberta, 
 
Canada.
 
 
"I am honored to have been chosen to serve on The Energy Council,” Bonnen said in a 
 
statement, “and look forward to modeling a sensible, reliable energy policy for Texas 
 
and the United States. The southeast Texas energy, manufacturing and trade region 
 
is a critical component of the successful development and production efforts our state 
 
has undertaken over the last decade. As we continue to face the challenges of growing 
 
national demand, increasingly complex regulation, and the threat of instability in the 
 
Middle East; our work on The Energy Council will be critical to ensure that Texas 
 
continues to serve as the crossroads of the North American energy market.”
 
The membership includes more than 5,000 members from various organizations, and 
 
is headquartered in Dallas. The Energy Council provides a forum for all energy-related 
 
professional societies and educational institutions to communicate issues and transfer 
 
technology among its members and the general public.
 
 
Bonnen is serving his first term in the Texas Legislature. He is a member of the 
 
Energy Caucus and serves on the Texas Windstorm Legislative Oversight Committee. 
 
Representative Bonnen was appointed to the House Appropriations Committee and the
 
House Committee on Insurance for the 83rd Legislative Session.
