Issue Position: Environment
Aggressive energy development must preserve the quality of our environment. Responsible stewardship of our great land demands we do no less for future generations. However, the current EPA system is a becoming a significant stumbling block to our personal freedoms, and to our economy, and it must be overhauled. There is a limited role for the federal government to coordinate matters that impact interstate concerns, but under our Federalist system of government most of the oversight of local environmental issues should be in the hands of the states.
