I believe Congress needs to work together to move America towards energy independence. This will require safely and efficiently utilizing a wide variety of energy sources, including oil, natural gas, nuclear energy, and renewable fuels.
While Congress and the Administration delay, jobs and revenue are being driven overseas and American citizens are forced to rely on foreign oil. Congress should repeal unnecessary regulations that drive up the cost of energy while doing nothing to actually protect the environment.
Hoosiers want energy policies that will bring down costs, protect our environment, and promote our national security and independence. I will support comprehensive plans that put the needs of Americans—not foreign companies—first.

WASHINGTON, D.C. - As part of a bipartisan effort to create more jobs, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) signed a letter to the President urging swift approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
“We have the opportunity to create thousands of good-paying jobs for American workers, stimulating our economy and contributing to our nation’s movement toward energy security,” said Walorski. “I urge the President to heed our bipartisan recommendation to approve the pipeline and put people back to work.”
