As the Vice-Chair of the Energy Subcommittee and a member of the Environment Subcommittee on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I am working to promote our nation's path to energy independence and security. Our district is a critical center for oil, gas and petrochemical refining, and produces 60 percent of our nation's jet fuel. In fact refineries along th Sabine-Neches Waterway produce nearly 13 percent of all gasoline east of the Rocky Mountains.
When it comes to our energy sector, the sky is truly the limit. If we can get rid of the restrictions that hamper our energy producers and truly commit to promoting energy, this industry could truly drive our economy for the next century and beyond. We are sitting on an abundant amount of natural resources, just waiting for us to tap into it. The potential workforce is available and all we need to do is put it to use. All that stands between us, a booming economy and energy security and independence is the President’s commitment to the tax-and-spend, big government policies of the past that have shackled our economy at a time when it needs to be unleashed the most.
For more information concerning my work and views on Energy issues, please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
