Hutchison calls for long-term energy policy

(CNN) – Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison struck a partisan tone while calling for the development of a comprehensive energy policy Saturday, just days after both Democrats and Republicans saw separate energy-related bills defeated in Congress.

“Republicans have consistently called for greater access to our domestic sources of energy to spur good American jobs, and to prepare for circumstances we can’t control, like natural disasters or unrest in the Middle East that creates instability and drives up the cost of a barrel of oil,” Hutchison said in the GOP weekly address.
