Energy

Dependence on importing foreign oil cost America over $321 billion last year. Petroleum and energy alone added $140 billion to our trade deficit. That lost income translates into thousands of lost jobs. By developing domestic energy sources rather than defending exploitation and extraction abroad, we could create jobs at home instead of sending our dollars overseas.

Previously, Congresswoman Kaptur introduced the Rural Energy Investment Act of 2013. This bill would invest in renewable energy programs with proven track records, such as biofuels, creating thousands of jobs that cannot be outsourced.

From her status as the senior Democrat on the Energy and Water Appropriations Committee, Kaptur is ocmmitted to fighting for job creating, energy investment across the Great Lakes Heartland. From offshore wind power to fuel-efficient vehicles to sensor technology to solar research and development, Northern Ohio is emerging as a hotbed for energy innovation.
