“Protecting our environment is an important goal that should be pursued without mandating expensive, over-sized solutions that could harm our economy. I oppose the “cap and trade” legislation pending in Congress – it’s a de facto national energy tax that would stifle job creation.”

She supports developing technology to set up more efficient, cleaner methods of energy production for natural gas, oil, nuclear, coal, hydro, and renewables such as wind and solar.

“I will work to repeal the federal takeover of health care and replace it with common sense market-based reforms.
