Growing Our Clean Energy Economy and Protecting our Environment

We face more urgent and pressing dangers to our environment, our economy, and the future health of Iowans than ever before. Ask any farmer here in Iowa and they’ll tell you firsthand that climate change is increasing instances of drought and unusual weather are taking larger and larger tolls on their crop production.

We need to grow our clean energy sector to create jobs and reduce emissions, not take actions that stunt the spread of renewable technology and give our robust private sector fewer incentives to invest in our region.

I’ll always be a voice for commonsense policies that protect our air and water, support the clean energy jobs of the future, and preserve Iowa’s climate so that the next generation of family farmers can continue Iowa’s tradition.
