The 2017-2018 legislative session provided us another opportunity to hold Congress accountable for their votes on energy issues. The following members were awarded the title “American Energy Champions” for their votes aligning with the core principles of the American Energy Alliance.

“This award goes to the members of Congress who have demonstrated a commitment to pro-growth policies that will lead to more affordable energy for American families,” AEA president Thomas J Pyle said. “The American Energy Scorecard is an essential tool for engaged citizens to determine how their representatives voted on the most important energy votes of the year. We’re encouraged to see 198 House members and 48 Senate members remain committed to free-market principles and continue to fight for less government intrusion into Americans’ energy choices.”

On the House side, AEA scored 13 votes including legislation related to repealing the overreaching WOTUS definition, cutting spending authority for ATVM loan programs, and expressing the sense of Congress that a carbon tax would be detrimental to the U.S. economy.

On the Senate side, AEA scored five votes including legislation related to drilling in ANWR, the Stream Protection Rule CRA, and BLM Planning 2.0 CRA.

The full list of votes and legislator scores can be viewed here.
