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:

 

Last week, HEAT Leaders and 127 House Republicans sent a letter to President Biden demanding he reverse his anti-American energy policies and unleash American energy by issuing a five-year offshore oil and natural gas leasing plan after his administration let the previous plan expire.

 

President Biden, however, made clear that he intends to continue the same misguided policies that created this self-inflicted energy crisis. Instead of unleashing domestic energy production, he opted to drain our already historically low Strategic Petroleum Reserve and begged OPEC to increase production, rather than approving the more than 4,400 permits to drill and produce cleaner energy here at home.

 

With winter around the corner, American families are scraping by to make ends meet with sky-high gas prices and home utility bills. House Republicans are committed to ending Biden’s war on American energy and getting us back to lower energy costs.
