HEAT Members Denounce President Biden's Continued Assault on American Energy Production
HEAT Co-Chair, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.): "President Biden is throwing away our American energy dominance that was achieved under the Trump Administration. By implementing a prohibition on oil and gas leasing on federal lands, the Biden Administration is signaling they are more interested in killing jobs and endangering our national security than bolstering the monumental energy advancements made during the last four years. President Biden's "Buy American" plans should also apply to American energy. But instead, his plans put thousands of American jobs at risk, like we've already seen with the Keystone XL pipeline, and will force energy production to foreign adversaries with horrific environmental standards. We've seen this playbook before under the disastrous Obama Administration, and all it did was skyrocket energy prices for hard-working Americans and made our country less safe."
