We have been blessed with an abundance of natural resources. The energy renaissance occurring in Ohio and other states has shown that new technologies and private sector innovation is the key to a thriving economy powered by safe, reliable and affordable energy. Obama's war on coal is having devastating effects on the communities that rely on coal for jobs and for affordable energy.

The take-home pay for everyday Americans is stagnant, so why would anyone want to squeeze their budgets even further? Making it harder and more expensive to mine and utilize coal will hurt Americans that are already hurting the most.

I believe in an energy policy that encourages the responsible development of our naturals resources, creates jobs and powers our economy with safe and affordable energy.
