I identify as independent but I'm fiscally conservative and social more to the liberal side

I would be friendly to american business, but also environmentally responsible. I feel that the government has the obligation to subject business to standards which ensure companies don't take advantage of people, but is also friendly to thebusiness

Can you elaborate exactly on what ideas you would have to accomplish this goal?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this department is a consolidation of several domestic departments right?

Yes Dept of Interior, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Labor.

Ecologic effects. More specifically I would implement codes which expand off of the clean water acts and the Kyoto protocol to encourage companies to research and develop practices which both benefit the consumer and the environment

Hmm so you're only encouraging companies right not requiring? What are your thoughts on internal improvement?

Definitely only encouraging. I think requirements are bad for business. In the way of internal reform I would separate the department into three sections: Land management which would be agriculture and the interior

Second: Urban planning which would cover large population centers and would encompass transportation and urban development. Third would remain the same as labor and would deal with business relations and would feature my incentive plans
