We need to minimize our dependence on foreign oil, and part of the solution may lie in our state's fields and forests. Developing ethanol, biodiesel and other natural fuels as our newest "cash crops" will provide Wisconsin with an economic and environmental advantage. We will also keep more of every dollar spent on energy in Wisconsin.
Renewable energy is a win for farmers, vehicle owners, the environment, and our state's economy. I will work to provide tax credits and the necessary infrastructure to ensure renewable energy has a chance to succeed.
