Energy

 

Our nation needs an American energy policy that will reduce our reliance on foreign oil and lower energy costs. In Congress, I will fight for common sense solutions to meet our future energy needs. A balanced approach that expands energy exploration can help fuel our economic engine, and opportunities to utilize alternative and renewable energy sources reflect the reality that we need to continue American prosperity with cutting edge technology and environmental advances. Using our American energy resources will create jobs at home in Indiana and reduce energy costs.
