The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) congratulates Gov. Rick Perry on his confirmation as the new Secretary of Energy. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Perry received another $1.58 million from the oil and gas industry through outside groups during his 2016 run for president.

During a Republican presidential primary debate in 2011, the governor answered a question about cutting government by listing the three agencies he would like to cut but failed to remember the third - the Energy Department.

Perry was quick to respond - "country", he said. "We have since worked hand in hand on countless projects and I am sure our relationship will grow even stronger over the coming months and years as we work to return the Department of Energy to its core mission and reduce waste".

Renewable-energy supporters expressed hope.

The Department also deals with other issues, however, including regulations that affect our nation's energy providers, who have a large impact on the environment. Stephen Yurek, president of the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute, said, "It is important that the secretary ensure that the regulatory process, now 40 years old and in need of significant reform, operates fairly and consistently for all stakeholders".
