    ORIGINAL REPORTING: A Moment Of Truth Coming For Secretary Of Energy Perry

    How will Rick Perry run the Department of Energy? Some Texas energy veterans remember an engaged, pro-business governor, while others worry of a 'pay-to-play' DOE

Perry does not have a reputation as a strong leader in the DOE agenda that includes basic science, nuclear management, international relations, lab management, and many complex interactions with states, universities, and industry on R&D, deployment, and market development, according to Rabago, who was also a former DOE Deputy Assistant Secretary. Sloan said Perry was an “all-of-the-above kind of guy.” Tom Smith, executive director of the Texas Office of Public Citizen, a consumer watchdog group, worked parallel to Perry “since the first day he walked into the legislature” and said Perry often didn't fully understand the implications of what he did. Both Smith and Rabago said they saw a worrying pattern of Perry rewarding political allies in his energy policies… click here for more
