Energy Workforce joined a coalition of seven energy associations representing 70% of our nation’s energy supply in a letter to Congressional leaders urging them to support the bipartisan agreement to raise the debt ceiling that includes some permitting reforms. This legislation is a good first step, but more must be done. We call on lawmakers to take up robust permitting reform, that resumes regular oil and natural gas leasing, establishes reasonable environmental analysis, expedites permitting, provides litigation reforms, prevents federal encroachment on nonfederal wells and removes the tax on natural gas. We look forward to working with lawmakers as they continue to address these vitally important issues that support our energy security while providing affordable, reliable energy to communities at home and abroad.
