Rick Perry Issues Energy Plan To Create Jobs

Rick Perry
Rick Perry issued his energy plan this week that he claims will increase domestic energy production and create jobs. His proposals call for increased domestic production of natural gas and oil.  Perry believes it is necessary to revive the U.S. economy.  Perry's plan calls for increased oil drilling off the Atlantic Coast, around Alaska and on federal land in Western states. He also urged ending the ban on drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Perry said that as president he would severely curtail the Environmental Protection Agency’s role in setting emissions standards for businesses because he believes the rules often hurt the economy

Perry said he would oppose tax credits and benefits that favor specific kinds of energy. (Rick Perry, Wash Post, 10/15/2011)
