NTU urges all Representatives to vote "YES" on The Lower Energy Costs Act (H.R. 1).

The Lower Energy Costs Act would improve the current state of the American energy sector and repair years of misguided energy policy. Since the first day of President Biden’s term in office when he stopped the Keystone XL pipeline through executive action, he has made clear his administration would be disruptive to the energy sector. A stronger American energy sector means a stronger economy. H.R. 1 will remove burdensome and cumbersome red tape that has led to billions of dollars in delays and sent a ripple through our economy with skyrocketing costs.

Once enacted, H.R. 1 will reform the permitting process for all energy industries, streamline energy infrastructure and exports, boost domestic energy production, and increase production of critical minerals. For this reason, NTU has named H.R. 1 a top priority for the 118th Congress. H.R. 1 is the energy package Americans and taxpayers need and Congress should act quickly on these reforms. NTU applauds the House leadership for taking action and looks forward to the swift approval of this package. 

Roll call votes on The Lower Energy Costs Act, H.R. 1, will be significantly weighted in NTU’s annual Rating of Congress and a “YES” vote will be considered the pro-taxpayer position.
