Energy

Support a broadly based energy policy, which incorporate the following points:

  • Oppose the privatization of the Federal Power Administration and the government-owned transmission and power generation facilities at federal dams.
  • Support federal programs to reduce our dependence on petroleum and nuclear energy through the development of alternative sources such as plant-based ethanol, geothermal, solar and wind energy technologies among others to provide affordable energy.
  • Urge the use of all biomass, ethanol and bio-based fuels as sources for strategic, transportation and heating fuels. (2005 & 2010)
  • Support wholeheartedly the financing and continuation of our Rural Electric Cooperatives and Rural Telephone Associations.
