Trio of bills destined for nowhere threaten American energy security

A trio of House bills (H.R. 205, H.R. 1941 and H.R. 1146) that propose eliminating U.S. energy exploration off our coasts and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are prime examples of legislation carried out to create publicity for anti-energy activists, David Holt, President of Consumer Energy Alliance, said in a statement.

“At a time when America should be taking stock of the global significance of its expanded energy production and leadership in environmental stewardship, this set of House bills – which have no chance at becoming law but may be helpful for generating press releases for radical anti-development groups and politicians – represent a step in the wrong direction for families and businesses all across the country.

“These bills all propose to take natural resources away from their rightful owner, the American public, while tossing aside millions of jobs and billions in tax revenue. In doing so, they threaten our energy security by reintroducing the possibility that we will return to the days when the U.S. relied on energy supplied by nations that do not share our interests.

“America can and must continue our environmental stewardship and energy development. We are showing the world that both can occur at the same time. These bills would take the U.S. in the wrong direction, harming our energy economy and offering no real environmental leadership.”
