I look forward to partnering with Roger as we work to promote America’s energy security, economic strength, and environmental stewardship.”

“I’m pleased Senator Marshall will be joining the Senate HELP Committee,” said Senator Richard Burr,  Republican Leader of the HELP Committee. “Senator Marshall brings with him more than 25 years of experience practicing medicine.
