Our nation should be guided by an “all-of-the-above” energy policy that maximizes our resources and promises safe, secure, and affordable American energy. Our energy policy should meet the twin goals of reducing pollution and promoting a healthy environment, while also enabling our economy to thrive and keeping costs low for American consumers. These priorities are not mutually exclusive, and I believe we should strive to meet them together.
I support policies that avoid artificial government restrictions and expand access to all forms of American-made energy, which will create jobs and reduce energy costs. This must be a primary goal as we work to improve our nation’s energy infrastructure. Reducing regulation and encouraging innovation will lead our nation toward a brighter energy future. Ohio has a leading role to play in this future, and I will continue working to ensure we bring down costs for consumers, create good paying jobs, and safeguard access to American energy.
