Baird named chairman of Energy and Environment subcommittee

U.S. Rep. Brian Baird, D-Wash., has been appointed chairman of the Energy and Environment Subcommittee of the House Science and Technology Committee.

Baird said the post will give him a key role in reshaping national energy policy and prevent acid rain from damaging the ocean.

“I am extremely concerned with climate change and ocean acidification and look forward to playing a leading role in using scientific research to craft responsible policies in these areas,” Baird said in a statement Thursday.

The subcommittee has oversight over a number of environmental, energy, and climate change and research programs.
