Scott Segal Reacts to Obama's Second Inaugural Speech

January 22, 2013

Scott Segal, partner at the Policy Resolution Group at Bracewell Giuliani, who represents power, oil and gas, and refining companies, offered the following reaction to the President's second inaugural speech:

"In a soaring and impressive speech, the President acknowledged the important but somewhat limited role appropriate for the federal government.  He did, however, seem to embrace a broad agenda on climate change.  The President missed the opportunity to remind listeners that climate change is an international phenomenon which will require international solutions.  Indeed, inflexible national policies unfortunately restrain our economy without delivering promised solutions."
