Views On The Federal Government

Government Involvement

We must fight to keep the federal government from infringing upon our citizens everyday lives. We must remember, the government does not create jobs. By keeping the federal government in check, and the EPA out of Texas, we can provide a better future for our children.

EPA & Environment rights:
We must fight against burdensome unconstitutional rules promulgated by the EPA related to CO2 and methane emissions and Waters of the United States.

We must protect individual citizens property rights. Property rights must be upheld whether its surface or mineral ownership.

With my leadership and your help we have an opportunity to unite against the EPA. Together we can create a desire to bring landowners and exploration companies closer together, in order to be more productive, effective and encourage development.
