Today, Senator Lee announced that he has hired Chris Prandoni to serve as his new Energy and Natural Resources Legislative Assistant. 

Prior to joining Senator Lee’s staff, starting on Wednesday, May 6, Prandoni was the Director of Energy and Environment Policy at Americans for Tax Reform, where he managed their energy portfolio covering oil and natural gas policy, as well as mining, electricity generation, and utility interests.
 
“I’m thrilled to have Chris join my staff,” Sen. Lee said. “His extensive policy experience with carbon taxes, cap-and-trade, EPA regulations, and oil and natural gas development on federal lands will make him an invaluable asset to the people of Utah, as he will advise me in my capacity as a member of the Senate’s Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. Having worked closely with state legislators and utility companies around the country, helping them comply with federal regulations, Chris knows how important local natural resource management is to a land-rich state like Utah. I look forward to working with him as I continue fighting in the Senate for legislative solutions that empower Utahns to manage and control their natural resources according to the needs and priorities of their communities.”
