Energy and Natural Resources

America’s energy security depends on a balanced, comprehensive energy policy.  We must increase production of America’s vast energy resources and take advantage of Louisiana’s natural resources as a way to grow the economy and create good-paying jobs.

Louisiana is the 2nd largest crude oil producing state in the United States and ranks third in natural gas production.  As a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, I am committed to advancing Louisiana’s energy agenda.

This includes:

  • Expanding access to oil & gas production
  • Scaling back onerous EPA Energy Rules
  • Removing the barriers to construct oil & gas infrastructure such as the Keystone XL Pipeline.
  • Increasing liquid natural gas (LNG) exports to our allies abroad
  • Increasing domestic refinery capacity to improve America’s long-term energy security.
