Under Secretary Perry and President Trump, America was a net exporter of energy. While in Congress, I will support policies and initiatives that regain our energy independence and reassert ourselves as the world leader in energy production. Again, it is time that we put American energy first and allow for greater innovation, research, and development. This will secure us from the domestic impacts of international conflicts that influence the global energy market and allow us to better support the American people. Some of my efforts include:
- Cosponsored H.R. 6947, the Freedom from Russian Energy Enterprise and Domestic Oil Maximization Act which will ban imports of oil and natural gas from Russia.
- Cosponsored H.R.6858, the American Energy Independence from Russia Act, a bill increasing our energy production by approving the Keystone pipeline and rescinding the presidential permit requirement for other pipelines. Also, expands permits for drilling and mining on federal land.
- Cosponsored H.R.6772, the Expediting Natural Gas Exports to Allies Act, a bill revising export application for natural gas to U.S. allies.
