Environment

It is essential that our state protect our water, air, land and other natural resources. Protecting our resources is both essential and beneficial to responsible economic development and quality of life. We need to manage these resources in a way that strengthen South Dakota's vital industries like hunting and tourism. Our polices should promote sound conservation practices geared toward long-term sustainability. These policies need to include all forms of energy (including coal) and emphasize and encourage energy conservation.

Mike believes in a “North American” solution to our dependence on foreign energy. All forms of domestic energy should be pursued.  Mike does not believe in higher taxes on energy producers.
