Environment and Energy
I grew up hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains, and I want to do all I can to ensure that future generations can enjoy the outdoors while also helping our national energy policy keep pace with our 21st-century economy. My priorities include protecting the Smokies, supporting research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and letting our free enterprise system put us on the path toward clean, cheap, reliable energy.
