Ever-increasing energy costs are making it more difficult for Missouri families to make ends meet, for local businesses to stay competitive, and for you to purchase affordable goods. I support an all-of-the-above energy plan that develops our own domestic resources, including oil from Alaska and the Gulf, natural gas, coal, nuclear power, along with alternative sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower. This comprehensive strategy will lower prices, create new American jobs, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, strengthen our national security, and generate revenue to help tackle our out of control national debt.
