Lee Terry

1:42:42 to 1:42:56( Edit History Discussion )

Lee Terry

1:43:13 to 1:43:32( Edit History Discussion )

Lee Terry: listening to some of the testimony from previous a bill, we had a speaker that stood up and talked about how it was the white house or george bush's fault that we have to import more oil

Lee Terry

1:43:32 to 1:43:49( Edit History Discussion )

Lee Terry: dung his administration. and, of course, that does appear to be our energy policy. but keep in mind that this house has voted in the 10 years i've been here, at least, i think, eight or nine

Lee Terry

1:43:49 to 1:44:00( Edit History Discussion )

Lee Terry: times open up either offshore or alaska oil, which has been shut down on every attempt. we've been able to pass it a handful of times. it's been either vetoed or blocked in the senate. so

Lee Terry

1:44:00 to 1:44:15( Edit History Discussion )

Lee Terry

1:45:42 to 1:45:57( Edit History Discussion )
