One Month After House Vote, Gardner Urges Senate Action on LNG as Russian Aggression Escalates

July 25, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – One month after the House approved H.R. 6, the Domestic Prosperity, and Global Freedom Act, Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) today urged the Senate to take action on liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports to help diminish Russia’s influence and create more jobs at home. With Russian aggression escalating, the need for LNG exports has never been greater, and the United States has an opportunity to help allies in Europe and across the globe. It is time for the Senate to finally act so America can fully utilize its energy abundance to bolster our economy and be a global energy leader.

“The U.S. has an opportunity to show leadership. We cannot continue to sit on our hands and wait to see what Russia does next. The House did its job, and it is time for Harry Reid and the Senate to do their job,” said Gardner. “Although the Senate is pretty good at it, doing nothing is not an option. It is time for the Senate to follow our bipartisan lead, and stand up for American workers and our allies.”
