Energy Plan Revolution Coming from Republicans?

The Financial Times reports that “the Republican party will seek to remove what it claims are shackles on America’s energy revolution just as low oil prices threaten the economic viability of some US shale developments.”  

“Since Republicans won control of Congress, attention has focused on their support for the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada and opposition to what they call the president’s ‘war on coal’, but a push to boost US shale energy will be at the heart of their agenda.”  

“Mitch McConnell, who is likely to lead the Republican Senate majority in the new Congress next year, said after last week’s election gains: ‘We need to embrace the energy revolution that’s going on in our country and promote it.’”
