As the economy continues to sour, Congress's response to energy policy becomes more and more vital, and Nancy Boyda has been at the forefront of the struggle to response with this massive problem.
In yet another clip of her remarks to at the Kansas Democratic Party State Convention, Boyda asks a simple question: "Do you think that you and I should be subsidizing the big five integrated oil companies?"
Like she says- that shouldn't be a hard question.
Boyda joined a bipartisan majority in late February to pass the Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation Act, which invested millions of dollars into ending our dependence on foreign oil.
Boyda said, "Renewable energy offers tremendous promise for our state's economy. Kansas has the soil to grow crops to be converted to biofuels, the skies to harvest wind energy, and the research base to nurture new technology. Now all we need is a national commitment to energy independence. That's what today's bill is all about. It should be called the 'Kansas Economic Development Act' – that's how important it is to our businesses and communities."Nancy Boyda's stand on energy is clear: We've got to break our dependence on foreign oil and other nonrenewable fuels and that we've got invest in alternatives- the greener, the better.
