FreedomWorks Statement in Support of House Republicans’ Energy Package

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to House Republicans’ introduction of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, Cesar Ybarra, FreedomWorks Vice President of Policy, commented:

“For the past two years, Americans have been forced to contend with the high price of heating their homes and filling up their gas tanks. This has no doubt been due to apathy on the part of President Biden and Congressional Democrats as they continue their war on American energy. Compounded by inflation, the high cost of energy has caused prices to rise across different sectors of the economy. Such poor policy has weakened American competitiveness and power abroad. This must change.”  

“House Republicans’ energy package will eliminate regulatory burdens created by unelected bureaucrats, advance permitting reform, help lower energy costs, and allow more opportunity for on and offshore production. This common sense energy policy is a good first step towards reclaiming American energy independence and dominance on the world stage.”
