Today on 'Mornings With Ken & Bernie' with Rob Guidry of the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce announced the guest speaker for this year's Business Over Breakfast.  Guidry said for the second largest fund-raiser of the year the Chamber's speaker would be Karen Harbert.  Harbert is the chief executive officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's energy policy arm, the Institute for 21st Century Energy.  Guidry said Harbert will not only discuss the future of the oil industry but also,

"permits for wind farms, permits for coal mining and nuclear energy are being turned down and fringe environmentalists are complicating matters and everything is being turned down".

According to Guidry, Harbert will talk about the politics of oil and gas and what is coming down the pike for the industry and legislation will affect local businesses in the years to come.
