America’s energy revolution has revitalized domestic energy production that had been steadily decreasing since the 1970’s and has opened the door for energy independence which was only a dream decades ago. We should welcome the technological advancements that have allowed us to use our domestic resources in a safe and cost-efficient manner.
The benefits from our energy revolution can be felt across the country from cheaper utility bills for American families; to the rebirth of domestic manufacturing that has been on a steady decline since 1980.
In an economy of stagnant wages and part-time jobs, the American energy revolution creates thousands of well-paying jobs and lowers costs right here at home. America’s energy policies should encourage innovation and domestic energy independence not hinder it. H.R. 2, the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More Jobs Act, will increase energy production and distribution, foster job growth, and pave the way for energy independence in the United States.
