Perry to Divest Holdings

Texas Governor Rick Perry is moving to divest himself of assets and relationships that could pose conflicts of interest, according to the Texas Tribune.

Perry, who is currently President-elect Donald Trump's nominee to become the next U.S. Secretary of Energy, filed an ethics disclosure this week. In the disclosure, Perry said that he would sell off holdings in multiple energy companies. Governor Perry also plans to divest himself of holdings in Tesla Motors, Microsoft, WPP Investments, and Grey Rock Energy.

Perry recently resigned from the boards Energy Transfer Partners and Sunoco Logistics Partners.

In the disclosure report, Perry also reported $1 million in income last year. Perry also reported over $1.7 million in debts.
