GOP Sen. Alexander talks energy bill politics, offshore drilling, judicial battles

Natural gas is a clean fossil fuel, but prices are going up and supplies are going down. This year's energy bill is likely to contain proposals to expand domestic exploration for natural gas on land and offshore. Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander joins OnPoint to discuss his proposal to allow more offshore drilling, how the energy bill is shaping up, and whether battles over judicial nominees will sidetrack passage of major legislation.
