Childers, Wicker offer their ideas on energy solutions

U.S. Rep. Travis Childers of Booneville and U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker of Tupelo are pushing ideas aimed at solving America’s energy problems.

Monday, Childers announced a six-point plan to deal with rising fuel prices, short- and long-term.

“Right now, working people need immediate relief from increasing gas prices and a long-term energy strategy to get this country back on track,” said Childers, a Democrat.

Wicker, a Republican, on Monday urged Congress to move quickly to support President Bush’s move to lift an executive ban on deep-sea energy exploration.

“The congressional moratorium on deep-sea energy exploration remains the only thing standing in the way of American consumers and more domestic energy production,” Wicker noted.
