Chair Rodgers Statement on President Biden’s Radical Rush-to-Green Agenda

Washington D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement regarding President Biden’s comments on our energy crisis at his State of the Union Address: 

“Since his first day in office, President Biden has repeatedly shut down American energy production and jobs. Time and again, he has put the interests of radical environmentalists ahead of the best interests of the American people, demonstrated most recently by his decision to ban American LNG exports. We should be embracing America’s energy leadership and building on it, which is why House Republicans have led on solutions to unleash American energy, lower costs, reduce emissions, create jobs, and strengthen our national security. It’s past time for President Biden to reverse his radical rush-to-green agenda—that is driving up costs across the board—and embrace these commonsense solutions that will improve people’s lives and secure our energy future.” 


President Biden has embraced a radical rush-to-green energy agenda that is out of step with the American people by:  

  • Ending the Keystone XL Pipeline 
  • Trying to ban gas stoves 
  • Working to tear down hydropower-supporting dams 
  • Forcing electric vehicle mandates onto Americans 
  • Imposing a tax on natural gas 
  • Banning American LNG exports

Energy and Commerce Republicans are continuing to lead on solutions that will lower energy costs, reduce emissions, and secure American energy leadership:
