Clean and Healthy Environment
Dean is a steward of Nevada’s natural resources
Dean believes (and has supported language stating) that climate change is real, that human activity plays a factor and that the United States should look at innovative ways to reduce pollution and conserve our nation’s natural treasures. He is also an avid outdoorsman and sportsman and believes it is important to responsibly develop and manage our abundant natural resources to meet our nation’s energy needs.
“I am one of the most outspoken Republicans in Congress advocating for policies that make our nation’s energy cleaner and more affordable.” – Dean Heller
That includes being a leader as a Republican and more broadly in Congress for renewable power, which is also crucial for Nevada’s economy. That includes successful efforts in leading the expansion and enhancement of production and investment tax incentives that are central to spurring investments in wind, solar, geothermal and other renewable development. He has also led efforts streamlining permitting of these projects.
His conservation record also stands strong. That includes championing such as the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument Act and the Pine Forest Range Recreation Enhancement Act that protect some of Nevada’s most cherished outdoor locations.
He also successfully pushed a bipartisan efforts to make permanent tax deductions for conservation charitable contributions and a program that funds conservation efforts via proceeds of public land sales and exchanges.
ClearPath Supports Dean Heller
I’m Jay Faison, founder of ClearPath Action Fund, a clean energy organization and we support Dean Heller because he gets things done. I’ve never seen such a hard-working congressman do so much for clean energy and the environment in just two years. Dean cares.
He knows how our actions impact the generations of tomorrow, so he finds clean energy solutions today. He has the courage to fight through Washington gridlock because he believes it’s the right thing to do. Dean is a true clean energy champion for Nevada and for America.
