Meeting Our Energy Challenges
Kansas Democrats believe America must reduce its dependence on foreign sources of fossil fuels. We reject the myth that energy efficiency and environmental protection are enemies of economic growth. We will make our economy more efficient by reducing our dependence on foreign oil, producing less waste and using less energy.
Kansas Democrats support measures to increase energy efficiency. We also support the development of economically and environmentally sustainable energy resources and a long-term commitment to the development of a renewable energy economy, one based on the production of power from wind, sun and bio-fuel. We support the availability of affordable energy and utility services to all Kansans.
