King Votes to Expand American-made Energy

Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King released the following statement after voting for H.R. 1613, Outer Continental Shelf Transboundary Hydrocarbon Agreements Authorization Act, and H.R. 2231, the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act. H.R. 1613 would put into effect the United States’ recent agreement with Mexico governing energy exploration, development, and cost-sharing along the maritime border in the Gulf of Mexico. H.R. 2231 would remove many of the obstacles created by the Obama Administration that are blocking energy exploration here in America.

“This week presented a true contrast of visions between President Obama and House Republicans,” said King. “The week began with President Obama proposing costly new regulations that will kill jobs, increase energy costs, limit American-made energy production, and increase our reliance on foreign energy. The week ended with House Republicans showing the way forward for more robust energy sector, more job creation, cheaper energy costs for consumers, and stronger energy security for America. I’m hopeful the American people will take note of the difference between House Republicans and the President. I’m confident our ‘all-of-the-above’ approach will win out over the President’s pessimistic plan for an energy-poor America.”
