We are delighted to note that one of Washington’s most knowledgeable energy analysts is joining the office of House Speaker Paul Ryan.  We think our Alaskan, Canadian and Lower 48 readers will be grateful that such an advisor will be in such a position to improve energy decision and policy making in Washington.  -dh

GOP Energy Veteran Kish To Ryan’s Office: As Playbook readers found out this morning, Institute for Energy Research Senior Vice President Dan Kish is headed to Speaker Paul Ryan ‘s office as a new policy adviser for energy, environment, and telecom – replacing Maryam Brown, who decamped for Sempra Energy last month after four years with House leadership. Kish’s 25-plus years of experience on congressional energy committees, and his muscular defense of fossil fuels, makes the hire something of a power move for Ryan, as his team braces for potential standoffs with a prospective Clinton administration. One source off the Hill likened Kish’s Capitol homecoming to “Moses returning to the mount.”
