Washington, D.C. — Today, Republican Leader of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Republican Leader of the Energy Subcommittee Fred Upton (R-MI), and Republican Leader of the Environment and Climate Change Subcommittee David McKinley (R-WV) release the following statement about Republican Energy and Commerce agenda for Securing Cleaner American Energy.
The Energy and Commerce Republican Leaders said:
“Today, Republican members on the House Energy and Commerce Committee are unveiling our plan to secure America’s energy future and global competitive edge against China, the world’s top carbon polluter. These energy and climate solutions will help modernize our infrastructure and ensure America continues to lead the world in reducing emissions —while keeping the lights on and energy costs low for hardworking Americans.
“Rather than Green New Deal-style regulations and job-crushing actions like canceling the Keystone XL pipeline, we urge Democrats to join us in a bipartisan way to advance these real, workable solutions. Our plan is a much better agenda to protect the environment, jobs, and our national security than their unworkable pie-in-the-sky mandates that will halt economic opportunities for millions of Americans.”
Note: House Energy and Commerce Republicans are leading on legislation that will secure America’s energy future and global competitive edge. This package will address climate change risks and spur the development and deployment of clean energy infrastructure without the ‘pie-in-the-sky’ mandates, regulations, and federal government spending dominating the climate and infrastructure plans of President Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the Democrats.
The House Energy and Commerce Republican agenda will protect jobs, energy reliability, and America’s national security from the Left’s rush to green and socialist agenda for a complete government takeover of the nation’s energy economy.
This package will modernize and improve our energy infrastructure and promote an all-the-above energy strategy across the board, including solutions to unleash innovation in hydropower, nuclear, clean coal, and natural gas. These are real, workable solutions to make energy cleaner, reduce emissions, prioritize energy security, and keep energy costs low.
