As top Republican on the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee, I will work with my colleagues to promote a common-sense and balanced approach to a fact-based energy and infrastructure policy that harnesses the power of America's job creators to grow and maintain a strong economy. My focuses include:

  • Holding the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and other federal agencies accountable to President Obama’s promise that his Administration would become “the most open and transparent in history”
  • Ensuring that federal agencies consider the comprehensive economic cost versus environmental benefit before creating and enacting new rules and regulations that affect businesses, land owners, states, and counties
  • Requesting that future rule-making is based on sound science before implementation
