The Environment

Protecting the Environment

The Federal Government has paid billions of tax-payer dollars to subsidize solar and other alternative energy sources. We need to end these subsidies and shift the risk from tax-payers to the investors who stand to benefit financially if the technologies work. Climate change is a reality and we can do something about it.  As stewards of this planet, all humankind has a responsibility to do our part to mitigate the effects of climate change – both natural and manmade.  Since the founding of our country, Americans have risen to the challenges of the day.  Visionary people have developed innovative solutions to the problems we face. 

I understand that climate change is not just an American issue, but rather the entire world must work together to find solutions.  The solutions must not create economic or financial burdens for America or American families.  Southern Nevada is uniquely positioned to make significant contributions to improve and protect the environment.  We ought to continue to lead from the front.

As your representative in Congress, I will support an “all of the above” approach to energy. I will vote to end subsidies that burden American tax-payers while enriching investors.
