ENERGY

Energy independence is important for our country. We need an energy plan that embraces all options for energy – including green energy technology, nuclear, and clean coal.

Congress has been working to pass their version of an energy plan (cap and trade), but the American people should not be fooled. What Congress has passed amounts to another tax on families and another job killer in our communities, especially here in Ohio. Our country cannot afford a direct hit to our domestic energy industry and Ohio families cannot afford higher electric bills.

We need to adopt a common sense, all-inclusive energy plan. As your next representative in Congress, I will work to do that.
