Republican Sen. Ted Cruz in Beaumont
BEAUMONT - Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas made a stop in Beaumont at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum to talk about his energy policy.
He's promoting a new bill he plans to introduce in the next few weeks. He calls it the American Energy Renaissance Act.
According to Cruz, the bill will remove federal barriers for people who want to develop oil, gas and other resources.
He says it will also open additional federal land to new development and exploration.
Cruz is in the spotlight because of his recent actions to block the increase in the debt ceiling.
Despite the political heat, Cruz says he won't back down.
