National Security Expert to Speak at Statehouse

7/17/2011

Indianapolis will play host to several military experts Sunday night as they speak to a bipartisan forum on the dangers of maintaining the country's dependance on foreign oil and opportunities for Indiana to lead the country in clean energy.

Retired Vice Admiral Dennis McGinn will speak at the statehouse on how our dependance on foreign oil impacts national security and combat missions. State Representative Mary Ann Sullivan (D-Indianapolis), who is part of the group that invited McGinn to Indy, says McGinn will offer compelling testimony.

"The general public is very unaware of the level of risk that our country is currently experiencing because of our dependance on oil, the fact that we are literally funding our enemies every day," Sullivan says.

Vice Admiral McGinn will be meeting with Governor Mitch Daniels on Monday and Sullivan says she thinks McGinn will encourage policies at the state level that encourage the development of clean economy businesses.

Sunday night's discussion will be held at the Indiana Statehouse from 7:30-9:00.
