For too long, the promises of modernized energy infrastructure were held back by the Obama Administration’s Washington-centric regulatory and environmental agenda. This Congress, things will be different.
With a unified Republican government, we have the rare opportunity to enact reforms that build on our nation’s energy abundance, modernize our energy infrastructure, and promote domestic manufacturing and job growth.
With former Chairman Fred Upton taking up the gavel at the Energy Subcommittee and Rep. John Shimkus leading the Environment Subcommittee, we will focus on energy infrastructure improvement and expansion while bringing greater transparency, accountability and predictability to our environmental laws.
– Rep. Greg Walden, Chairman, House Committee on Energy and Commerce
