This week, CEN and CRES are teaming up for the 4th annual fly-in sessions happening across the nation. Congressional leaders and staffers will be meeting with our CEN teams to discuss important energy issues including energy security, innovation and the benefits of free-market tactics. Director of External Affairs, Tyler Duvelius had this to say about the event: 

“In the face of rising prices and geopolitical strife, conservatives recognize that an all-of-the-above energy strategy that centers American-made technologies, innovation, and clean energy resources is critical to our nation’s security. There is widespread support for a market-based transition to a cleaner, more efficient energy future; CEN polling consistently shows that voters across the political spectrum prefer market-based solutions over government regulations to address our energy and climate challenges. CEN believes a clean energy future will ultimately grow the economy, inspire innovation, and protect our national and grid security. That is why we are bringing together state and local leaders from across the country to educate members of Congress on the importance of conservative clean energy and climate policy solutions. We look forward to a great week of positive and productive educational meetings.”
