Energy Workforce & Technology Council 90th Anniversary

Statement by Energy Workforce President on the Passage of the Lower Energy Costs Act

Today, Energy Workforce & Technology Council President Tim Tarpley released the following statement following House passage of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act:

“Energy Workforce & Technology Council applauds the passage of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, in the House of Representatives. The Federal Government should be enacting policies that support U.S. energy security, not standing in the way. H.R. 1 goes a long way in moving us towards that goal.”

“We believe this legislation will allow for a resurgence in American oil and natural gas production by providing much needed regulatory reform, removing barriers to vital infrastructure development and restoring certainty to federal onshore and offshore leasing. Unlocking our domestic energy strengthens our national security, lowers energy costs across the country and helps reduce global emissions by increasing U.S. oil and gas that is produced cleaner and safer and under stricter environmental regulations than almost all other major suppliers.”

“We encourage the Senate to take up H.R. 1 for a vote as soon as possible.”
