Fighting for American Energy Dominance

Posted in:

In recent years, we have seen record-breaking gas and energy prices that are a direct result of the Biden administration’s America-last energy policies. The United States produces cleaner, safer, and better energy than anybody else in the world, and diminishing our domestic energy production only benefits hostile foreign nations while increasing prices for American families.

I have been working diligently in Congress to pass legislation that eases Americans’ pain at the pump, makes it more affordable to heat their homes in the winter, and promotes an all-of-the-above energy approach that puts America first.

Lowering Energy Costs

I was proud to have helped secure the House passage of the Lower Energy Costs Act to bring much-needed relief to high energy costs. Specifically, the Lower Energy Costs Act will increase U.S. energy production, reform the permitting process, roll back the natural gas tax, and expand domestic production of critical minerals.

Defending American Consumers’ Choice

It’s hardworking Americans, not the federal government, who know what vehicle best suits their needs. In December, I spoke on the House floor in support of the Choice in Automobile Retail Sales (CARS) Act. This bill, which passed the House, will stop the Biden administration’s executive overreach by preventing the implementation of out-of-touch electric vehicle mandates that would limit Americans’ choice in what vehicles they can purchase. Watch my remarks below.

Fighting for Year-Round E-15

Year-round E-15 is good for Wisconsin consumers who want low-cost fuel options and our corn growers who want to distribute their made-in-America products. At a time where the average cost of a gallon of gas is over a whole dollar higher than it was in 2021, it’s that much more important that Wisconsinites have access to E-15 in the summer months.

Last year, I questioned Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan about his agency’s failure to approve summer E-15 waivers for the eight states, including Wisconsin, that applied. In February, the EPA announced that E-15 will be available year-round for consumers in 2025. While this is a “slow roll” of year-round E-15, it’s a major win for Midwest states and our corn growers. Watch my questioning of Administrator Regan below.
