President Obama's policies have restricted American energy innovation and the development of many of our nation's emerging energy resources. These restrictions are strangling our economy and reducing the domestic supply of energy. In fact, since President Obama has taken office, federal lands oil production alone has fallen nearly 14%.
Increasing energy production on our nation's public lands and waters can create millions of jobs, boost the economy, lower energy costs and make America more secure.
