OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry has been picked to succeed Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice presidential candidate, as chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact
The announcement was made Thursday by the IOGCC and the Oklahoma governor's office.
Past chairmen of the 30-state energy organization include former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson,
unsuccessful primary candidates for president this year.
Henry says energy-producing states are uniquely qualified to help lead development of the nation's energy policy.
