Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Alexander's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Adding Value to Wyoming’s Natural Resources
Excerpt: "I strongly support continuing to work with private partners and other stakeholders to develop an export strategy for Wyoming coal. I believe the state must redouble its efforts to support infrastructure for transporting our resources, including highways, pipelines and electricity transmission, which are vital to our ability to add value to our natural resources beyond severance taxes."
  • Supporting Wind Energy Development
Excerpt: "States in our target energy export market are requiring renewable portfolio standards to ensure increasing amounts of their power purchases come from renewable energy. The Wyoming Legislature allowed the sales and use tax exemption on equipment used in wind energy projects to expire this year, which is contributing to a slow-down in wind energy development. That puts Wyoming at a competitive disadvantage, and I strongly support reinstating the exemption."
  • Economic Development and Wyoming Small Business Support
Excerpt: "Opportunity starts with supporting existing businesses, ranches, and farms, along with developing policies that support new business creation. It includes keeping taxes and regulations to a minimum and expanding technical support for export strategy development. ...we need to support tourism, a source of great income for our entrepreneurs. We need to invest in education and business support through our university and community colleges to help our small businesses explore new markets here and abroad, and new ways of doing business."
  • Common-Sense Healthcare Policies
Excerpt: "The state of Wyoming needs to continue its commitment to funding the Wyoming Healthcare Provider Loan Repayment Program and our various physician-recruiting grant programs, and I support this. We must also intensify our involvement in the National Rural Recruiting and Retention Program to include nursing and mental health professionals. Investing in our education infrastructure at both community colleges and the University of Wyoming to ensure the health care workforce meets the dynamic, changing needs of our population."
  • Albany County and the Casper Aquifer
Excerpt: "We must continue to have a conversation as a community about the best way to protect our families’ drinking water while continuing to support economic activity and growth in Albany County. The solution must be informed by the best science as well as the needs of our residents. State, county, and city stakeholders should explore working together to protect the aquifer while ensuring that development can continue."
