Energy

 

"Americans deserve access to reliable, affordable energy, and the Obama administration's war on American energy must stop. I'm committed to doing everything in my power to reduce the overreach of the EPA, and ensure that America's energy portfolio is determined by market forces, not unelected bureaucrats."

  • Voted YES on the Ozone Standards Implementation Act (H.R. 806), which ensures that Ozone standards are set with a specific level for a set time, so the EPA can’t come back and change the goal posts every few years.
  • Voted YES on H.J. Res. 38, which was signed into law by the president to reverse the Stream Buffer Rule that would have saddled mines with unnecessary regulations that threatened American jobs.
  • Voted YES on SEC H.J. Res. 41, which was signed into law by the president to reverse the Disclosure Rule for Resource Extraction that would have put an unreasonable compliance burden on publicly traded American energy companies, putting them at a disadvantage to foreign-owned businesses.
  • Voted YES on the House and Senate-passed Keystone XL Pipeline Act (S. 1), which approved the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
