PROTECTING OUR NATURAL RESOURCES AND POWERING A NEW CENTURY OF GROWTH
The Helmers often spend their weekends hiking and swimming in the forests and lakes of northern and western Virginia and camping in National Parks. As a member of Congress, Dan will ensure that his sons -- and all American children -- have the opportunity to grow up and raise their own families in a country whose water, air, and land remain beautiful, safe, and clean.
We do not need to choose between growing the economy and protecting the environment. Dan will encourage investment in renewable energy, secure and efficient electricity distribution, and updated transportation infrastructure because he knows that such initiatives will create high-quality American jobs.
