Hard-earned dollars are being squandered on feel-good schemes. Consumers and policymakers are beginning to grasp the enormous difficulty of replacing fossil fuels.” Quoting Governor Glenn Youngkin, “All Virginians and businesses deserve access to reliable, affordable, clean and abundant energy.” Congressman Ben Cline in a recent town hall meeting in Berryville identified energy policy as his highest priority. Dave LaRock added, “Far left Democrats want to ban gas and diesel fueled vehicles, gas appliances and wood-burning stoves while driving up electric bills. It’s time to extract Virginia from these boondoggles.”
