Steve Roberts plans to moderate energy panel

Nov. 29, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

CHARLESTON -- Steve Roberts, president of the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, will travel to Washington Thursday, Nov. 29, to speak about West Virginia's energy producing sector at the States & Nation Policy Summit, sponsored by the American Legislative Exchange Council.

"The abundance of energy resources in the Mountain State are critically important to both our state and the nation," he said in a press release. "I plan to take our story to the nation's Capital and make sure both state and federal officials hear loud and clear our need for energy-related jobs to supply the nation with the energy it so desperately needs."

Roberts will moderate an energy panel at the Policy Summit, and will also make a statement on behalf of West Virginia's energy industry.
