Energy powers America, fostering innovation, opportunity, and jobs. Smart energy policy empowers America abroad. That’s why our nation must have access to energy that is affordable and from sources that are reliable. From the oil shale in North Dakota to producers in the gulf to safe sustainable fracking nationwide, American energy is helping lower costs for consumers and achieve energy independence from foreign sources. This American energy boom has largely been done despite the Obama Administration and liberals who have opposed pipelines and production time and again.

American policy should support the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, focus on reducing red-tape blocking the development of American energy, and encourage innovators that are identifying genuine new forms of renewable energy.
