“The Green New Deal costs trillions of dollars, destroys agriculture and other critical industries, and leaves hardworking Wisconsinites to foot the bill. It’s an absolute disaster that should be a non-starter in Congress, not a call to action.
“Instead of pushing for a radical pipe dream, we need to pursue an all-of-the-above energy approach that preserves our environment, spurs energy innovation, and promotes economic growth. That includes both empowering the Northeast Wisconsin farmers already implementing carbon-reducing practices and supporting projects like the Keystone Pipeline that are better for the environment and create good-paying jobs.
“Unlike some of my colleagues, I know we don’t have to destroy our economy to reduce our carbon footprint. There are a number of proposals already on the table that achieve this goal and I look forward to working with my colleagues to advance these solutions in the 117th Congress.”
