E&C Republicans Lead Passage of Bill to Repeal the EPA’s Green Slush Fund and Harmful Natural Gas Tax

Mar 22, 2024

Today the House passed H.R. 1023, the Cutting Green Corruption and Taxes Act, to repeal the EPA’s green slush fund and harmful natural gas tax. The legislation, led by Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL), will reduce the budget deficit, protect against government corruption, and stop China from receiving American taxpayer dollars. The bill passed the House by a vote of 209 to 204. 

As Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers said, “I strongly support H.R. 1023, the Cutting Green Corruption and Taxes Act, which promotes American energy leadership and security—something that’s vital to building on our legacy of improving lives, helping to lift people out of poverty, and raising the standard of living across the country and the world.” 

Rep. Palmer added, “Energy security is national security. Sadly, the Biden administration’s attacks on American energy make us more dependent on Russia, China, and other foreign adversaries. Passing H.R. 1023 will be a major step toward undoing their misguided policies.”
