Washington, D.C.: Conservatives have fought for many years to lead America to energy independence, removing our reliance on foreign oil and fuel products. Thanks to the GOP Congress opening the door in 2015 to oil exports, the Trump Administration’s removal of red tape and roaring economic expansion has put America on the path to soon pass Saudi Arabia in oil exports.

We are now witnessing that amazing oil and natural gas boom! This rising industry has provided thousands upon thousands of great paying jobs for American families and is leading our country to a new position of influence in the world.
