John Snow on Energy & Oil

Treasury Secretary (Pres. Bush Cabinet)


Open up ANWR to lessen dependence on foreign sources

Both our economic security and our national security are bound up in energy policy. Through greater access to reliable and dependable U.S. energy supplies like ANWR we lessen our dependence on supplies from other, less secure, parts of the world. We make ourselves less dependent on those uncertain supplies from places where tensions run high and where disruption is always possible.

America runs on energy and we need greater access to our own domestic supplies to assure adequate supplies of reliable low cost energy. That is good for our economic and it is important to our security. The Maritime Trades and Constructions Unions know that and you have supported the efforts to open up ANWR. something that will create jobs for Merchant Marines. You know that opening up Alaska means good jobs, Jones Act jobs, more reliable energy supplies and a more secure country.
