U.S. consumers will benefit from having more — rather than fewer — options in the energy industry.  Every American will deserves an energy future that is affordable and relies on the development of all types of energy production.  That will increase competition among industries, ensure lower costs, increased availability and a healthier environment.

Excessive regulation, restrictions on the development of new sources of energy, and political activism adversely affect America’s consumers by driving up energy prices, stifling innovation, and restricting research and development in the energy industry.

A robust, all-of-the-above, energy production will strengthen our national security, lower energy prices for all Americans, and stimulate the economy.  We will be stronger as a nation when energy embraces a competitive, diversified market for energy production and distribution. 

"Finally, treat domestic energy production as the economic necessity it is and the job creator it can be. Drill, and frack, and lease, and license, unleash in every way the jobs potential in the enormous energy resources we have been denying ourselves."

– Former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN)

"I truly believe if we work together and focus on a commonsense approach...we can develop a strong bipartisan energy plan that will not only break the power of foreign oil countries and speculators, but will chart a new and promising energy future for this great nation."

– U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV)
