House Republicans To Introduce Major Energy Package Next Week


On Tuesday, House Republicans will introduce a broad package of energy legislation entitled the Lower Energy Costs Act designed to speed up permitting and limit state authority to block energy projects.

  • House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA): “The bill is focused on opening up American energy by streamlining the permit process. Having a one-stop shop for things like pipelines, where right now you might have to go through five different federal agencies to get approval to build a pipeline and it drags these projects out to the point where they don’t happen…
  • Scalise: "We are forcing more lease sales so that we can have more areas being explored so that we can produce more energy… And we’re also dealing with mining as well of rare-earth minerals. So that’s something else that China had cornered the market on...”
  • Punchbowl News: “…in our estimation you should view this legislation as a menu of options for energy add-ons in future talks with the Biden administration. There’s a sense among some House Republican leadership aides that McCarthy and Scalise may push for energy policy as part of a broader debt-limit negotiation.”
