Burton/Pence to Host National Energy Summit in Indianapolis Live on Hoosier Access
The big news today is President Obama choosing Sonia Sotamayor as his choice to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court and the California State Supreme Court upholding Prop 8, banning gay marriage, but upholding the roughly 18,000 gay and lesbian marriages that took place.
But one of the big legislative issues has been President Obama’s cap and trade plan…a plan that Congressman Pence called “and Economic Declaration of War on the Midwest” and Congressman Burton referred to as “a genuine Trojan horse filled with taxes, and an attack on American consumers and our various industries.”
Tomorrow they will be in Indianapolis with fellow congressman from other Midwest states to hold an energy summit and Hoosier Access will be there to broadcast it live (provided the library wi-fi doesn’t boot the webcast) complete with live chat. Governor Daniels will be one of four witnesses tomorrow. The summit will start at 10:00am.
