BATON ROUGE - Shaw Group Founder Jim Bernhard told News 2 today he is up for consideration to replace Stephen Chu as the Secretary of the Department of Energy.

He also said there are other names out there to become the country's next Secretary of Energy.

Bernhard recently sold Shaw to Texas-based CB&I for more than $3 billion.

Chu announced his resignation from the post today, though his departure was widely expected after President Obama's re-election last November.
