Guiding Federal Legislation

Missouri River Energy Services (MRES) and its members remain active and involved in the legislative process, and we accomplish that through an aggressive legislative effort.

Energy-related issues continue to remain a focus at our nation's capital, and our staff closely monitors pending federal legislation relevant to MRES and its members. Working with our congressional delegation and other key policymakers is an integral part of our work agenda.
