Ann Wagner on Energy & Oil
The St. Louis area is fortunate to have many energy interests that call the region home. Focusing on a true "all-of-the-above" approach and fighting for energy independence will lead to more job creation and will ultimately be a stimulant for our economy.
Ann also supports getting rid of the over-burdensome regulations set forth by agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency that destroy our energy independence, job growth and national security, and force employers to expend resources on unnecessary and extreme regulations.
