Energy and Environment
America needs to have a true all-of-the-above approach to lower energy costs, reduce dependence on energy from volatile regions of the world, and create more jobs. That’s why Rep. Trott is working in Congress to get Washington out of the way and ensure we responsibly utilize our nation’s incredible array of energy resources.
Rep. Trott supports building the Keystone XL Pipeline and voted to end the Obama Administration’s roadblock of this important job-creating project. Construction of the pipeline will improve energy security in North America while creating 42,000 new jobs.
Having created thousands of Michigan jobs over his 30 year career, Rep. Trott knows firsthand that the solutions to America’s energy solutions will come from hard-working Americans and businesses, not from Washington.
Michigan’s incredible natural splendor makes our state one of America’s most beautiful and also is a leading driver of Michigan’s economy—contributing nearly $19 billion in economic activity yearly. Being a lifelong resident of Michigan, Rep. Trott is committed to ensuring our state’s natural resources and Great Lakes are protected for future generations to enjoy.
