Energy Independence

As gas prices continue to rise, we continue to see the failure of leadership in Washington in regards to our energy policy. For far too long, America has relied upon foreign countries to supply us with energy. Promises to make America energy independent have been broken year after year, and election after election. Jackie believes America can and must become energy independent. She supports a comprehensive energy policy that:

  • Allows for more domestic oil and natural gas exploration
  • Increases use of renewable fuels
  • Increases conservation through energy efficient appliances and homes
  • Allows for the safe development and use of nuclear power
