Domestic energy production is essential to creating an economic environment that fuels job creation and business investment.  America’s booming energy sector is a result of private investment and expansion of exploration and production on private lands.  Too often, the federal government stands in the way of our ability to achieve its own energy independence through overregulation. Consequently, regulatory barriers that stand in the way of that goal must be examined.

Mimi supports an ‘all of the above’ approach to energy production, and supports legislation that will move our country closer to energy independence.
