Statement Of Roger Zion, Honorary Chairman, 60 Plus Association, To Senate Energy And Natural Resources Committee, U.S. Senate
“In 1973, I served as the Chairman of the House Republican Task Force on Energy and Resources. I gave a speech on the House floor in which I said: “If we don’t make maximum used of domestic energy sources, we will be held up by the Arabs and our National Defense will be threatened.” At that time we were importing 35% of our oil. Now it’s over 60%.”
