WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 6, the Domestic Prosperity and Global Freedom Act, which will expedite liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to America’s allies abroad.
“As the largest natural gas producer in the world, this is America’s moment to lead. It’s our moment to lead a global energy revolution; to bolster our national and economic security; and to create hundreds of thousands of jobs right here at home. This legislation – which increases natural gas exports across the globe – does just that. I commend Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) for cutting red tape in an industry that supports so many American jobs. This is our moment to lead. So let’s seize it. Let’s build a stronger economy. Let’s increase America’s global competitiveness. And let’s create good-paying jobs for the thousands of Americans, right here at home, who are eager to fill them.”
