(Washington, D.C.) Today, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers asked the Democratic House Leadership not to adjourn for the August district work period until leaders allow a vote on exploring for more sources of American energy. So far, Democrats have refused to allow such a vote—only prolonging the high prices that Eastern Washington farmers and families pay at the pump.

McMorris Rodgers believes it will take an “all of the above” approach to lowering energy prices. McMorris Rodgers supports increased conservation efforts, investment in renewable energy sources like wind and solar, as well as exploring for more sources of American energy.

Earlier this month, McMorris Rodgers created the bipartisan Congressional Hydropower Caucus to promote hydropower as a renewable resource and important component of meeting America’s energy needs with American resources.
