Issue Position

Places job creation and responsible conservation standards at the forefront
Promotes energy conservation as vital to the path towards independence
Promotes the development of renewable sources by providing one-time grants to Montana Universities to help develop emerging energy technologies
Does not include long-term subsidies to any type of production. The end solution must be supported by free market fundamentals
Speeds up a responsible approval process. Lengthy approval and certification creates higher capital costs and raises the barriers of entry for smaller Montana producers
