Energy and Natural Resources
As Chairman of the Subcommittee on Minerals and Energy and Chairman of the Western Caucus I have been a leader in Congress in promoting energy development, sustainability and economic growth. The federal government owns the majority of land in Arizona with only 17% privately owned. This deprives Arizona of a tax base for education and roads and creates a significant burden for local governments. I have fought against the Obama Administration's pointless and punitive efforts to shut down our domestic energy and resource production. I’m working closely with the Trump Administration to make our country great again by developing our resources.
