Senate Confirms Brouillette

Senate Confirms Dan Brouillette to Lead DOE (NYT, Subscription)
Lisa Friedman (Dec. 02): The Senate has confirmed Dan Brouillette to be President Trump’s second secretary of energy, replacing Rick Perry… Senators voted 70 to 15 in favor of Mr. Brouillette’s confirmation. Several Democrats including Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, Tom Udall of New Mexico, and Richard J. Durbin of Illinois joined Republicans in approving him. Since 2017 Mr. Brouillette has been Mr. Perry’s second-in-command at DOE. He has pressed the Trump administration’s policy of “energy dominance,” which includes the rapid expansion of oil and gas drilling and a bolstering of American fossil fuel exports.
