Energy & Infrastructure
Middle-class families depend on affordable, reliable energy to prosper. In the United States, our natural resources are abundant, and as important to national security as to our economy. To wean our country off foreign oil, and lower fuel prices for everything from groceries to heavy machinery, I support safe domestic production. In Congress, I have voted to permit new pipeline construction, authorize international gas exports, and protect dependable energy, such as coal and nuclear, so important to Tennessee. Supplying our allies with American-made energy helps cement alliances.
