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.  Iā€™m working closely with the Trump Administration to make our country great again by developing our resources.
