Evansville, Ind.--Today, Joe Donnelly visited Riverfront Park in Evansville to meet with Hoosiers who work in the energy industry and talk about his support for domestic energy production. He chose to visit the Ohio River in Evansville, waterway serving the southwest Indiana coal industry, to highlight one element of his six-point plan: Going All-in On American Energy Production.
“There is no more pressing issue than job creation, and we need to go all-in when it comes to American energy production to both create jobs and keep our hard-earned dollars here at home,,” said Donnelly. “Evansville is the perfect example of how Indiana can be an energy leader. Many hard working men and women like those with me this morning work hard in the coal mines each day to provide our state with the energy we need. By pursuing every resource, we can put even more Hoosiers to work.”
Joe’s plan also includes provisions to cut taxes for Hoosier job creators; protect American jobs through a trade policy that works for Indiana, not China; invest in Indiana roads and bridges; and give workers the skills they need to compete. He has an overarching belief that this must be achieved while living within our means and has plans to address the debt crisis.
Donnelly visited Ivy Tech’s Wabash Valley campus in Terre Haute this morning to talk about worker training and will visit New Albany to talk about the importance of infrastructure like the Sherman Minton Bridge this afternoon. Yesterday, he visited Xylogenics, a research-based company in Indianapolis, and traveled to Fort Wayne to meet with BF Goodrich and Dana Corporation workers.
