VIDEO: T. Boone Pickens, Gov. Bryant team up on state energy plan

Energy financier and natural gas advocate T. Boone Pickens joined Gov. Phil Bryant and other utility and business leaders Wednesday to unveil a statewide energy policy for Mississippi.

“While we wait for Washington and Congress to act, leadership is emerging at the state level, and this week, Mississippi, under the leadership of Gov. Phil Bryant, is helping move America further down the road towards meaningful progress on the energy front,” Pickens said.

The Oklahoma-born financier is the founder of the investment firm BP Capital and has been a leader in independent energy exploration and production for more than 40 years.
