HEAT Leadership to Biden: Approve the Willow Project and Unleash American Energy

Mar 14, 2023
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, House Energy Action Team (HEAT) Chairman Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX), Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Kevin Hern (R-OK), and HEAT Vice-Chairman Mike Carey (R-OH) released the following joint statement in response to the Biden Administration’s actions on the Alaskan oil and gas Willow Project and other drilling:

“President Biden is speaking out of both sides of his mouth by issuing a partial approval for the Willow Project while simultaneously taking steps to limit future exploration in the Arctic Ocean and across Alaska. If the President really wanted to fulfill his ‘climate goals,’ he would approve the entire Willow Project and allow our American energy producers—who have brought emissions down by almost 15% in only ten years—to continue providing clean, affordable, reliable energy to our country and the world.” 

The House Energy Action Team (HEAT) is now a Republican Study Committee (RSC) initiative.
