Ryan Zinke on Energy & Oil

 

 


Alternatives only if competitive prices without subsidies

Montana is the Treasure State and part of that treasure is the oil, gas and coal we have. The priority is to achieve North American energy independence in a manner that develops our natural resources responsibly by using accepted industry best practices and leveraging emerging technology.

Coal, oil, and gas are critical components of reaching energy independence and must be accelerated through increased domestic production and constructing the infrastructure necessary to produce, refine, and transport energy. Renewable and alternative sources of energy, including hydro and biofuels, are also an important component of energy independence provided that they are cost effective and able to compete on the open market without subsidies.

Economic sustainability and job creation are critical to the continuation of energy independence in our country. A primary component of energy independence and economic development is building the Keystone XL pipeline.
