The United States has the largest reserves of oil and natural gas of any country in the world. I believe we should utilize these resources to provide cost-effective energy and move toward North American energy security. Oil-rich nations often use energy scarcity as a bully tactic, and attempt to politically manipulate the countries they supply. By removing federal impediments on LNG exporting, hydraulic fracturing, and building the Keystone XL pipeline, North America would offer an alternative to countries relying on Middle Eastern and Russian energy. I will oppose unnecessary, burdensome regulations that drive up the cost of energy and impede foreign markets.
