Todd Staples, the president of Texas Oil & Gas Association, recently spoke in support of former Gov. Rick Perry's nomination for U.S. Secretary of Energy.

"Texans are tired of political posturing by federal bureaucrats," he said. "Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be a breath of fresh air because he is committed to protecting the environment while making Americans less dependent on other nations for our energy needs."

Staples noted that during Perry’s tenure, Texas' energy production skyrocketed through a combination of industry innovation and science-based policies.

"Texas is the No. 1 oil and natural gas producer in the nation," Staples said. "Perry understands that America can protect the environment, enhance national security and grow the economy – all at once. We’ve done it in Texas and look forward to seeing all Gov. Perry will accomplish for our nation as U.S. Secretary of Energy."
