In the Weekly Republican Address, Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell discusses ways that local, state and federal governments can ensure safe, reliable and affordable access to America's vast energy resources. Yet despite the potential for American energy independence, Governor Parnell says, the White House too often puts the brakes on domestic energy production, wasting taxpayer dollars instead on green energy boondoggles that have collapsed in failure and bankruptcy. "If Washington, D.C. would start working with states to unlock access to federal lands, an economic boom would be felt across this nation, lifting wages, and creating hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs and improving our national security through energy independence," Governor Parnell says.
