(USNewsMag.com) – The American Energy Act (H.R.1067) has been presented by Republican Colorado congresswoman Lauren Boebert. The outspoken Republican on the House panel responsible for natural resources claims her idea will free up energy production in the United States. This would occur as a result of measures taken to simplify the energy permission procedure, lower gas costs, and do away with groundless legal claims.
According to the leader of a coalition of primarily small, independent, and ecologically friendly gas and oil companies in the United States, this measure will reduce the burdensome regulations imposed on the energy sector by the Biden administration.
Boebert claims that her legislation would assist in lowering gas costs by ensuring reliable energy output. With gas prices continuing to rise and the global energy market becoming more unstable, the rest of the world urgently needs the United States to provide its share of the necessary energy.
Supporters of the bill include the Western Energy Alliance. Its president, Kathleen Sgamma, was interviewed about the legislation. She said that the regulatory climate in the natural gas and oil business is very complicated. While American energy is produced more sustainably than that of any other nation, there are still several unnecessary regulatory hurdles that must be cleared before any significant growth can occur here. We can reduce our reliance on suppliers like Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and Russia by making it simpler, not harder, to develop domestic sources of energy.
President Joe Biden recently said that oil and gas will be necessary for the United States for another decade. Sgamma was asked whether Biden and the Democrats should back Boebert’s plan since the president seemed open to utilizing oil and gas, despite the criticisms that time frame has received.
She said in response that the Democrats’ opposition to any measures that would benefit American oil and gas producers was clear. They believe that blocking the American producers would result in a “shiny renewables future” in which global warming is no longer an issue. Nothing can take the place of oil and gas, so that is not the case.
