Pipeline would help break addiction to foreign oil

As an Iowan and a veteran, energy security is an important issue to me. I was able to attend the recent utility board meeting in Newton on the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and came away with a few thoughts.

While Iowa is fortunate to benefit from wind energy produced in our state, relying only on wind power — or over-relying on any single source — isn’t a safe investment in our energy future.
