Energy

Our nation needs a coherent policy that promotes domestic production of energy, which will grow our economy and decrease our reliance on foreign oil. Rather than focusing solely on less reliable and more expensive renewable power, an all-of-the-above energy approach will provide more good-paying jobs, lower energy prices, and more disposable income for hardworking Americans.

I have supported legislation that increases domestic energy – such as natural gas, hydropower, oil, and biomass – by removing restrictions, expediting the permitting process, and streamlining duplicative environmental reviews. In Congress, I will continue fighting for common-sense solutions will move our nation toward a more stable economy, increase our energy supply, and lower costs for households and employers
