The refineries and petrochemical plants in and around the 36th Congressional District are unmatched. Advancing policies that keep our refineries free from expensive, ineffective, and burdensome regulations is essential to our local and national economies. Projects like the LNG export facility in Sabine Pass are vital in creating job opportunities for those who call East Texas home and work to make America stronger and more secure.
While the Trump administration worked relentlessly to achieve American energy independence, the current administration has launched an all-out war on our oil and gas industry. As a result, gas prices have reached record highs while our petroleum reserves have plummeted to record lows. Instead of addressing this fixable issue by reversing course and investing in our producers, Biden begs OPEC and other foreign dictators for energy.We are the world’s energy superpower and do not need OPEC, Russia, or any other country’s oil. Relying on other nations, some of which are our enemies, puts our national security at significant and unnecessary risk.
I will keep fighting this administration’s anti-oil and gas agenda in Congress and remain committed to a real, long-term energy strategy that maximizes domestic energy production, cuts through bureaucratic red tape, and restores America’s energy independence.
