Rising energy prices are hurting businesses, employees, and Florida’s families.  I am committed to supporting legislation and policies that will lower energy and gasoline costs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and strengthen the American economy.

Solving the energy crisis requires a long-term comprehensive solution that includes commonsense, free-market oriented reforms.  I support a four-point plan to lower energy costs by increasing environmentally sound American exploration of oil and gas, increasing the supply of domestic energy, encouraging research in advanced alternative and renewable energy technologies, and improving conservation and energy efficiency.
