Americans face rising energy prices. Government regulations have increased costs and depleted supplies. We have become dependent on foreign energy sources which imperils our economy and national defense.
Stephanie Bell takes an "all-of-the-above" approach to energy independence, recognizing the need for domestic oil and nuclear energy production. France gets 80% of its energy from clean, safe nuclear energy; yet, the U.S. has not built a new reactor in 30 years. She supports nuclear power, limited oil drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), access shale on federal lands, offshore drilling, and coal. We must continue to explore alternatives such as bio-fuels, geo-thermal, wind, and solar power.
