Bruce Westerman on Energy & Oil

 

 


Expansion of energy sources should be market driven

Q: Do you support state funding for the development of alternative energy?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support state funding for the development of traditional domestic energy sources (e.g. coal, natural gas, oil)?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support providing financial incentives to farms that produce biofuel crops?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you support enacting environmental regulations aimed at reducing the effects of climate change?

A: No.

Westerman adds, "I believe that new forms of energy production, expansion of existing energy sources, or upgrading of existing infrastructure should be market driven. I believe that state funding from the standpoint of reduced corporate taxes, tax incentives, and some low interest bond programs are good for energy development projects as well as for manufacturing industry projects and would provide more tax revenues in the long run because of increased jobs and wages. State funding for research and development of new energy sources is also a good investment."
