Dear Chairman Murkowski and Ranking Member Manchin:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Dan Brouillette to be Secretary of Energy, and urges the Committee to expeditiously consider his nomination.
Mr. Brouillette has an extensive background that makes him highly qualified for this position. Having previously been confirmed by the Senate, both in his current position as Deputy Secretary of Energy, as well as Assistant Secretary of Energy for Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs, he is especially prepared to lead this important agency.
Moreover, Mr. Brouillette has also amassed significant private sector experience, serving in executive roles at financial services and auto companies. He has also served as senior staff at the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.
The Chamber urges the Committee to favorably report Mr. Brouillette’s nomination to the full Senate.
Neil L. Bradley
