When addressing our nation's energy needs, I have and will continue to advance an "all-of-the-above" solution. I believe it is critical that we, as a nation, take a diversified, market-based approach to meet our energy demands and create an energy independent America.

This approach must include making federal lands available to all forms of energy production including traditional and renewable, while ensuring that bureaucracies, like the Environmental Protection Agency, do not artificially pick "winners" or "losers."
