“In the short term, we must reduce red tape and end frivolous litigation that blocks the development of America’s energy resources. Energy security is a major challenge that can be overcome by making use of American ingenuity, innovation, and natural resources.”

“Harnessing South Dakota’s sunshine and wind is critical to expanding clean, renewable energy solutions. But like any industry, renewable energy production cannot thrive under heavy regulation and long approval processes.

“We should be talking about energy freedom, new technologies, and discoveries.

“NEPA reforms are important to building green energy infrastructure, resiliency, and the things that are important to [Democrats]. … There is a more efficient, better way to do it that doesn’t compromise the integrity of the environmental protection at all by streamlining the NEPA process.”

“The success of conservation policy must be measured by its outcomes — not by the number of, or stringency of, regulations. The focus must instead be on supporting local conservation efforts that use some of the most effective species recovery tools we have: private citizens and American industry.”
