On the Issues

Environment and Energy

Congressman Bishop believes that as part of a strong national defense and a healthy economy, we must give greater attention to our energy and environmental policies.  Across the nation, we all feel the impact of higher energy costs. The results of this have been increased transportation, food and manufacturing prices that have become a persistent strain on our families and threaten the prosperity of our country.

That’s why Congressman Bishop supports initiatives that promote conservation and energy efficiency, utilize alternative energy sources, expand our domestic supplies of oil and natural gas, and above all, protect consumers.

Congressman Bishop has worked on issues from the Tired Creek Project (the construction of a 900-acre recreational fishing lake in Grady County),to flood protection and water security projects throughout the 2nd District.  He also supports increasing domestic energy production and a reduction of our dependence on foreign oil.
