- The White House issued a statement of administration policy Monday, stating that President Biden would veto Republicans’ sweeping energy package in its current form.
- According to the memo, the Biden administration “strongly opposes” the bill — titled the Lower Energy Costs Act — because it would work to counteract the administration’s own agenda promoting green energy sources over fossil fuel alternatives.
- The memo claimed that the GOP legislation proposes to replace pro-consumer policies with a “thinly veiled license to pollute,” echoing criticism from top House Democrats.
