Issue Position: Comprehensive Energy Policy

Issue Position

Location: Unknown

I support a comprehensive energy policy with a goal to move toward national energy independence. To that end, we must embrace and encourage the development and research in renewable energy resources such as wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, ethanol (cellulose, waste. etc.), biodiesel, biomass, and others. Additionally, we must continue to encourage the exploration and development of oil and gas, oil shale, coal, and nuclear based energy. Electricity is fundamental to today's society. Clean coal and nuclear power plants must be encouraged to meet the increasing demand for electricity.
*I oppose regulation that impedes energy discovery, production, and transportation.
*I oppose mandating the use of any energy resource.
*I oppose any Cap and Trade scheme.
*I support shortening the permit process for the construction and improvement of power generating plants
*I oppose duplicative and punitive regulation and licensing that increases the cost of energy.
