KSCB News - January 30, 2012 8:32 am

State Representative Carl D. Holmes (R-Liberal) announced
today he has filed for reelection to the Kansas House of
Representatives for the 125th District. The 125th District includes
most of Seward County and the cities of Kismet and Liberal.

Implementation of a statewide energy policy is one of Rep. Holmes’ top
priorities. He is chairman of the House Energy and Utilities
Committee, chairman of the Kansas Electric Transmission Authority,
chairman of the Joint Committee on Energy and Environmental Policy and
is member of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Budget
Committee. He also serves on a number of national energy committees
including the Executive Committee of the Energy Council of America and
the National Conference of State Legislatures Energy Supply Task Force.

“The energy issues I am responsible for are extremely technical and
affect the quality of each of our lives. I have focused on the
availability and affordability of dependable energy services for a
number of years,” said Rep. Holmes. “We need to move forward with a
balanced statewide energy policy that takes into consideration our
current energy needs and also is realistic about the direction of our
future energy supply.”

Representative Holmes serves as vice-chairman of the Joint Committee on
Administrative Rules and Regulations. Since Governor Brownback’s
Office of the Repealer is making rules and regulations a priority, this
committee will be charged with also reviewing the proposed rules and
regulations changes.

“During the past year, I have been able to bring together the rural
legislators, including many new members, to discuss issues concerning
Western Kansas,” said Rep. Holmes. “I look forward to continuing the
meetings with new and returning rural legislators after the next

“It has been my privilege to represent you in Topeka,” Rep. Holmes
said. “When you first elected me, I made a long term commitment to the
125th District. We have made progress on the issues facing our
community but there is still much to do. It is my hope the voters will
once again allow me the honor of representing and serving them so we
can continue to improve our community and state. I sincerely
appreciate the faith and trust that you have given me. I am committed
and ready to continue the job.”
