The "House GOP's leading expert on energy policy" (Wall Street Journal, 10/02), Representative Joe Barton has led the House charge to pass comprehensive national energy policy legislation. In the past two congresses, he has shared authorship of the two most comprehensive energy policy packages to pass in the House since the 1930s.
