Bill Passed to Build a More Secure America

Great news! The House of Representatives just passed H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act on a bipartisan vote to drive down the cost of energy across the board. This is critical legislation I helped write with my colleagues to deliver on our Commitment to America and an economy that’s strong. 

The goal of the bill is simple: make sure Americans have access to affordable, reliable energy. The bill:

  • Boosts energy production 
  • Lifts regulatory burdens for the construction of more energy infrastructure
  • Cutts China out of our critical materials supply chains
  • Lowers costs across the board

The bottom line is this: High energy costs are making life unaffordable for the hardworking people of this country. I’m confident H.R. 1 will ease that burden by driving down prices, and it will help us build a better and more secure future for everyone.

To learn more about H.R. 1, you can watch my remarks on the House Floor this week below:
