Tesoro expands lobbying office
By Juliet Eilperin
As Congress and the administration gear up for the fight over possible new curbs on U.S. greenhouse gas emitters this year, oil refining powerhouse Tesoro Corp. is expanding its Washington office.
The San Antonio, Tex.-based Fortune 100 company announced Monday that is has just hired Jamie Moore, a former senior aide to Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.), as director of federal government affairs. Moore will focus on representing Tesoro before Congress and the executive branch, according to company officials. He joins Stephen H. Brown, vice president and counsel for federal government affairs.
"Jamie brings tremendous familiarity with the issues facing our industry and a wealth of legislative experience developed over eight years of working in Senate Republican leadership circles," said Stephen Brown, Tesoro's vice president and counsel for federal government affairs.
At least no one can say independent oil refiners aren't doing their part to create jobs during this tough economic time.
