Energy

When it comes to energy production, we need to have an approach that responsibly takes advantage of every possible resource available while also reducing our dependency on volatile foreign nations.

With the advancement of projects such as a the Keystone XL pipeline, new energy technology, and the evolution of traditional energy sources American must strive to be a world leader in energy production and exports.

The Sixth Congressional District is home to the Monticello Nuclear Generating Plant, freight corridors that move oil from the Bakken Oil Field and numerous electrical co-ops that provide electricity to homes and businesses. America needs sound energy policy to heat homes and businesses during our brutal winters and to support commerce to keep Minnesota a vibrant place to live.
