Pat Murphy on Energy & Oil
PROMOTING RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT: Pat supports efforts to expand Iowa's job base and promote economic development, but in a way that is responsible and considers all the costs involved--including public health and global warming considerations. He stands with local communities that have imposed moratoriums on sand fracking in Northeast Iowa, and in Congress, Pat will push for more research and development into next-generation technologies that curb greenhouse gas emissions while promoting growth in manufacturing. Pat is opposed to the Keystone Pipeline because it doesn't create lasting, longterm jobs while endangering our largest aquifer.
