Elizabeth Ames Jones: America needs America's energy

I support policies that will put America on a path to true energy security and acknowledge the reality that we will continue to need a diverse mix of resources, including hydrocarbons, to fuel our economy.

I support the responsible development of America's energy resources including opening new areas for the exploration of oil and gas. The fact is, America needs America's energy.

A sensible plan depends on the can-do attitude of the American people rather than the government-knows-best attitude
