The HEAT Report is a weekly newsletter focusing on how members of the House Energy Action Team (HEAT) promote American energy security, and an all-of-the-above energy economy.

 

The Latest:

 

With the latest push from Democrats on their radical Green New Deal policies, it’s getting harder and harder for everyday Americans to keep the lights on.

 

California Democrats passed legislation to ban gas-powered vehicles on the same day consumers were asked not to put “additional stress” on the electric grid by using large appliances – including charging electric vehicles – during peak evening hours.

 

These policies are clueless and out of touch.

 

If you want to see what a future of Democrat energy policies looks like, you don’t have to go much further than Europe’s green energy catastrophe.

 

As a result of the European Union’s radical green policies and its over-reliance on Russian energy, households and small businesses are seeing firsthand the consequences of Green New Deal-style policies – energy is scarce and expensive.

 

It’s high time this administration’s war on energy is brought to an end. In the coming weeks, House Republicans are going to introduce our “Commitment to America” to show the nation how our policies will solve the Democrats’ self-inflicted crises.
