With all the economic uncertainty today we must not forget how the rising costs of energy impact our economy. We need individuals in Congress who understand the importance of energy independence. This will lower the price at the pump for families and businesses who are the heart of our economy. Congressman Peter Roskam understands that. Working with Rep. John Shimkus, the pair has proposed the Energy Vision Act, which calls for increased domestic energy production while promoting alternative production and conservation. Rep. Roskam has already started the efforts toward alternative energy helping to get nearly $3.4 million for the Gas Technology Institute of Des Plaines. With that money, GTI is working to increase the application of alternative energy, further reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Energy independence is a priority of Rep. Roskam, and we need it if we ever want to get our economy back on track.
