What do your elected officials and state leaders believe is in our country's energy future--and what's in store for Michigan? What decisions will they make, and which direction will they take, if elected, to ensure that the United States remains at the forefront of global energy innovation and domination? How will they create policies that recognize the energy industry's importance in determining the health of Michigan's manufacturing economy--and its environment?
