2015 Winner of the Political Leadership on Climate Change Award
U.S. Sen. James Inhofe is well known in his home state of Oklahoma and in Washington, DC as one of the most conservative members of the United States Senate. Human Events recently ranked Inhofe #1 on its list of the “Top 10 Most Outstanding Conservative Senators.” In 2013, National Journal ranked Inhofe among the top five most conservative members of the Senate.
Inhofe considers one of his unique qualifications for office to be the 30 years he’s spent in the business community, where he grew tired of being over-regulated by the federal bureaucracy. He is a lifelong Oklahoman who grew up in Tulsa and graduated from the University of Tulsa with a degree in economics. A veteran of the U.S. Army, Inhofe was first elected to the Senate in 1994 and serves as chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
It is with great pleasure The Heritage Foundation presents Sen. James Inhofe with the Political Leadership on Climate Change Award.
