It's imperative that America reduce its dependence on foreign oil and other energies. The fact that we are so dependent on foreign sources is a supreme failure by our government. Alternative energies must be developed and made in America to cure this problem. One of my first legislative proposals as Congressman will be the 'South Georgia Alternative Energy Initiative' - which will make our region the national leader for alternative energy research, production and commercialization. South Georgia is an ideal place for producing agri-fuel, wind, solar, biomass and other alternative energies. Click here to see our community's alternative energy resources. America must and ultimately will move forward with developing alternative energies, and some place will benefit from this. I want that place to be South Georgia.
