Leppert said that two of the major problems people are facing right now are a bad economy and high gas prices. He said that this poor economy will not just affect our children and grandchildren, but federal issues are affecting us right now. As for gas prices, Leppert had this to say:

“I look at the issue of energy, and I don’t think we have an energy problem. We have a regulatory problem.”

Leppert said that we have plenty of energy resources available to us here in the U.S, but regulations are preventing us from accessing them. Leppert also talked about lower taxes, the institution of marriage, and women at Augusta. He also spoke about theĀ  issues surrounding the city-owned convention center in Dallas, saying that he is in full support of the private sector.
