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:
With H.R. 1, we’ll boost energy production, lift regulatory burdens for the construction of more energy infrastructure, cut China out of our critical materials supply chains, and lower costs across the board.
