FreedomWorks Statement on Passage of House Republicans’ Energy Package

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the passage of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives, 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. With the passage of H.R. 1, Americans will begin to experience lower energy costs, and energy producers will be empowered to bolster their domestic energy production. This is a good first step towards reclaiming American energy independence, and it is critical that the Senate brings this legislation to a vote in a timely manner and sends it to the President’s desk to be signed into law.”
