Tackling our nation’s energy crisis will require a broad and comprehensive strategy that includes pursuing all forms of energy including wind, solar, nuclear, biofuels and coal. I will continue to strongly support the development of renewable energy sources that reduce our dependence on foreign oil and create new, innovative green jobs for Hoosiers. Since coming to Congress, I have had an opportunity to vote on a wide range of progressive energy bills that seek to create jobs, increase domestic energy production and protect our environment.
Even as the economy continues to recover, Americans of all backgrounds are still looking for work.

As a Member of Congress, I will continue to advocate for equal access to quality education and innovative programs that will prepare our children for college, career, and beyond.
