E&C Announces Budget Hearing with Energy Secretary Granholm
Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Bobby Rush (D-IL) announced today that the Energy Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Thursday, April 28, at 10 a.m. (EDT) with Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Jennifer Granholm on the fiscal year 2023 budget request for DOE. The hearing is entitled, “The Fiscal Year 2023 DOE Budget.”
“Rising oil and gas prices from Putin’s unprovoked war on Ukraine have proven that the fossil fuel market is too volatile and easily manipulated by our global adversaries. It is time to make America truly energy independent by continuing our transition to clean energy, which is more affordable, stable, and generated right here at home,” said Pallone and Rush. “We are pleased the Biden Administration’s budget proposal reflects this vision and makes critical investments in a clean, equitable, and affordable energy future. We look forward to discussing the budget proposal next week, as well as the need to reduce energy costs for Americans, combat the climate crisis, and protect our energy infrastructure from cyberattacks.”
This will be a hybrid hearing that includes both in-person and remote member attendance via Cisco Webex video conferencing. Members of the public may view the hearing via live webcast accessible on the Energy and Commerce Committee’s website. Please note the webcast will not be available until the hearing begins.
