Energy & Environment

Congress must be proactive and pass a comprehensive energy policy that will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and lower costs for working families. American energy produces American jobs.

The overall formula is simple – we need to increase supply and lower demand. To achieve that goal, we must diversify our domestic energy supply and encourage the use of clean, renewable energy sources like wind, solar, nuclear and biofuels. We must also boost domestic supplies of both natural gas and oil by exploring in the Outer Continental Shelf.

A comprehensive energy plan should be guided by the following principles:

  • Promote the use of new, clean and reliable sources of energy like wind, solar and nuclear.
  • Increase the supply of domestic energy-producing American energy produces American jobs through domestic exploration and production.
  • Invest in research and development for innovation and energy efficiency.
  • Create incentives for alternative energy sources.

We also need to reduce our carbon emissions but we cannot do so at the expense of jobs and raising prices on working families. We need to craft aggressive, yet realistic, goals that will allow us to reduce emissions, strengthen our environment and create jobs. During these challenging times, we simply cannot afford radical policy changes that will increase costs on working families and result in job losses.
