Montana is home to vast amounts of wind, solar, coal, geothermal, hydro, and natural gas resources.
Jon believes in a robust energy portfolio that taps into all of Montana’s energy resources to create good-paying jobs and generate critical tax revenue for schools and infrastructure projects, while powering homes and businesses across this country.
Jon also knows the climate is changing. He sees it firsthand on his farm, where planting and harvesting seasons are beginning earlier each year.
Jon envisions an energy economy that supports high-paying jobs and addresses the threat of climate change—an energy economy powered by Montana commonsense.
That’s why Jon has worked across the aisle to introduce legislation that will help burn coal cleaner and capture the carbon emissions from coal-powered plants.
Jon has also introduced legislation to strengthen the renewable energy sector and ensure Montana’s public lands are being used responsibly to support energy jobs.
Montana’s energy future is bright. Jon will work to keep these good-paying jobs and protect clean air and clean water for future generations.
