WHEN IT COMES TO ENERGY INDEPENDENCE, I BELIEVE IN THE FOLLOWING CORE PRINCIPLES -
America needs a comprehensive domestic energy policy that puts us on a path toward American energy independence.
As your Member of Congress, I support an all-of-the-above approach to addressing our nation’s energy needs. We must allow for fair and equitable competition, not pick winners and losers. Allowing true free competition in the energy market will eliminate the abuse of taxpayer money and increase consumer choices.
Our nation has been blessed with an abundance of natural resources. Unfortunately, in recent years, overreaching regulations on energy producers have driven up costs, harming both job creators and consumers in the process. These overly burdensome regulations drive up the price of energy, food, public utilities, and transportation.
Since I was first elected, I have worked with my colleagues to rein in out-of-control regulators, and moving forward, I will continue to support efforts that create jobs, grow our economy, and strengthen our energy security.
