American energy is crucial for our economy and our national security. The energy industry provides millions of good-paying jobs for Americans across the country, allowing them to provide for their families and make ends meet. Strong domestic production at home also allows us to maintain energy independence, which is critical so we are not reliant on our adversaries for these essential resources.
The Biden Administration and Democrats have sought to destroy America’s energy industry and move us away from the renaissance we have experienced over the past four years.
House Republicans recognize how vital a thriving energy sector is for our nation. We will champion all forms of energy, while working to prevent Democrats’ Green New Deal style plans that would devastate so many Americans from taking effect.
