Essential Estrogen: Rep. Reichert Touts New Energy Economy

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

Speaking to about 100 people at a fundraiser for Cedar County
Democrats on Saturday Night in Tipton, Rep. Nate Reichert said a new
energy economy is "the greatest opportunity Iowans have had in at
least two or three generations." The Muscatine resident, who has
represented District 80 in the Iowa House since 2004, was tapped to be
the chairman of the Standing Committee on Energy Policy. He wrote the
first draft of the Iowa Power Fund, a four-year, $100 million effort
intended to spark development of renewable energy technologies. The
fund was one of Gov. Chet Culver's top legislative priorities,
although it wasn't passed through the Legislature until late in the
last session.
