Latham turns up heat on energy policy

Sunday, September 24, 2000

Congressman Tom Latham continues to lambaste the Clinton Administration for not implementing an energy policy to prevent price climbs for fuel from the pumps to the home. In a telephone conference call, Latham said recent talk of opening the nation's reserves carries "political ramifications."

Latham said the country has operated without an energy policy for seven years - something he considers frustrating.
