- The GOP-led House passed the Lower Energy Costs Act, which GOP leaders have said is aimed at combating President Biden’s “war on American energy” by nixing presidential permits for certain energy projects, among other policy changes.
- The legislation was introduced by House Majority Leader Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), a member of the Natural Resources Committee. The bill passed 225-204 with four Democrats voting with the Republicans and one Republican voting against it.
- The legislation focuses on lowering energy costs by “increasing American energy production, exports, infrastructure, and critical minerals processing, by promoting transparency, accountability, permitting, and production of American resources, and by improving water quality certification and energy projects.”
