As a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, I believe we need an all-of-the-above energy strategy that utilizes different types of energy like coal to power our country in a fiscally responsible way that protects American jobs.

Climate change is a real and serious threat, but I do not believe that radical solutions proposed in the Democrats’ “Green New Deal” are the solution. The Green New Deal is projected to cost up to $93 trillion over ten years, at an estimated cost of over $60,000 per year per household. I believe that we need innovative and market-based solutions to combat climate change.
