Our nation's long-term energy policy must be aimed at reducing prices for American families and businesses. I support an all-of-the-above energy strategy that utilizes our nation's abundant domestic resources so we can continue to be an energy-independent nation.

Today, Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) voted in support of Senate Bill 1 to build the Keystone Pipeline. The bill passed 270 to 152, with bipartisan support. The bill has passed both chambers of Congress and now heads to President Obama's desk for his signature.
"The Keystone pipeline helps secure our country's energy independence and supports jobs without raising taxes or adding to our debt. There is broad bipartisan support for this legislation and the president should sign it," said Moolenaar.
Building Keystone Benefits the Fourth District
As the new representative for Michigan’s Fourth Congressional District, one of the first votes I cast was in support of building the Keystone XL pipeline. Building this pipeline would create jobs, expand economic opportunity and provide Americans with a more stable source of energy, coming from a friendlier and more reliable trading partner than many of our nation’s other sources of oil.
