Dear Senator DeWine,

Five quick questions that I would appreciate the answers for and would be delighted to publish your responses to at the State of Ohio Blogger Alliance blog.

Will you support legislation backed by major labor organizations, such as the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, to increase domestic energy supplies and create jobs for their workers?

Will you support environmentally responsible legislation backed by a majority of local Alaskans that allows them to use their own land to create jobs and provide funding for water and sewer systems, health care and schools?

Will you support legislation that will safeguard America's economy by producing 1.5 million barrels of oil per day, roughly equivalent to what we import from Saudi Arabia daily?

Will you support a $728 billion investment in America's economy that will help lower prices at the pump and strengthen America's energy security?

Will you support legislation that will lower energy costs for consumers while providing greater revenues to the federal government?

For the record, these are the same questions that Majority Leader John Boehner has asked of Nancy Pelosi.

DeWine's answer would be: no.

(On a related note, I wish that Pres. Bush did a better job of teaming with the Teamsters to get this done.)
