As our population grows, so too will our energy requirements. Our nation must focus on new, creative, clean and affordable ways to create this energy and bring sustainable energy related jobs to Ohio’s 5th district. We cannot lag behind the rest of the world when it comes to producing clean and sustainable sources of power. We need to encourage individual as well as federal commitment to sustainable energy. I will support legislation that paves the way toward moving our energy dependence from fossil fuel to completely renewable energy sources.
