Rep. Rose Speaks in Support of ‘Unlocking our Domestic LNG Potential Act’

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-06) spoke on the House Floor Thursday in support of H.R. 7616, the ‘Unlocking our Domestic LNG Potential Act’.

The full remarks, as prepared for delivery, are below:

Mister Speaker, today I rise in support of H.R. 7616, the “Unlocking our Domestic LNG Potential Act.”

This bill is simple. It would repeal President Biden’s ban on Liquified Natural Gas (or LNG) exports. By passing H.R. 7616, we could strengthen our struggling economy, further U.S. leadership in reducing emissions, and increase the energy security of the United States and our allies.

Green New Deal activists shouldn’t be driving America’s energy policy—especially at the White House. Restricting LNG exports will mean higher prices at home for Americans as it reduces the amount of worldwide output—putting upward pressure on the price. It also decreases investment in infrastructure and good-paying American jobs.

Mister Speaker, we must reverse course on this disastrous decision. Americans are already paying too much at the pump, grocery store, and everywhere else – and we must restore America’s energy independence from foreign energy producers.
