Energy Independence

American consumers, businesses, and farmers demand leadership and vision for our nation's energy future. We must develop an aggressive, innovative strategy to lead the way toward energy independence. Please read more about Maria's most recent efforts to enhance incentives for investments in renewable energy, ban gas price gouging, boost fuel economy standards, increase transparency in oil and gas markets, make more cars biofuels compatible, and invest in Northwest alternative fuel infrastructure.

Maria is working to expand the use of locally produced biofuels through aggressive incentives.  To jump start your alternative fuel project or find an ethanol or biodiesel station near you, please see her Guide to Federal Biofuels Incentives.

Meth Awareness

Raising awareness about the dangers of meth is critical to keeping this devastating drug out of our communities. We must do more to provide the resources to confront this epidemic from every angle. By stopping meth, we can make our communities safer and curb the many problems, from gang activity to identity theft to neglected children, that accompany meth trafficking and use.
