For the past few months, my colleagues and I have been hard at work creating important legislation that addresses some of our critical energy needs.
The Farm Bill which I guided through the Agriculture Committee invests the resources necessary to develop alternative sources of fuel here at home and end our dangerous addiction to foreign oil.
The President and his Party refuse to pass this legislation because big oil companies and oil-producing countries in the Middle East disapprove of the measure.
I am certain the Republicans have it all wrong. Just as I know Americans care about the cost of fuel to drive their cars and heat their homes, I also know the good people of this country care deeply about reversing the affects of global warming and ending our dependence on foreign oil.
That’s why I need your help. Join me today by signing my petition. Call on your members of Congress and the president to support these critical investments in renewable sources of energy. Tell them you want a bold new strategy and a responsible energy policy for the future.
Thanks, as always, for your continued support.
