Press Release: Former Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle joins the US Energy Security Council

From USESC, April 4, 2013

The United States Energy Security Council (USESC) today named former Hawaii Governor Linda Lingle as its new member.

The Council is the highest level extra-governmental group ever convened to address the energy security challenge facing America.  Its membership includes former Secretaries of Defense, State, Interior, Transportation, Homeland Security, Agriculture, Navy and Air Force, a former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, three former National Security Advisors, prominent business leaders and a Nobel Laureate.

The Council is focused on reducing the strategic importance of oil by breaking its virtual monopoly over transportation fuel. The Council works to ensure that new cars sold in the U.S. and throughout the world are open to fuel competition.

“Hawaii’s gasoline prices are the highest in the nation, and in no state are consumers more vulnerable to oil price spikes and supply disruptions,” said Governor Lingle.

“I’m honored to join a group of national leaders in an effort to bring about consumer choice in fuels that will stabilize prices and increase our state and nation's energy security.”

“Governor Lingle brings to the Council a unique perspective and wealth of experience in running a state whose economy is heavily dependent on tourism, a sector which is severely impacted when oil prices rise,” said Dr. Gal Luft, senior adviser to the Council. “We are proud to have her on board.”
