Key Votes: Motions to Instruct

The American Energy Alliance urges all Senators to support the following motions to instruct conferees to the H.R. 4521 conference committee.

YES on Barrasso motion requiring the development of a new offshore leasing plan. The administration has taken no action to begin a new five-year leasing plan as required by law.

YES on Lee motion to discard extraneous green provisions passed by the House. These provisions are not relevant to a China competition bill and should not have been included.

YES on Sullivan motion to prevent taxpayer dollars from subsidizing products from China or Russia. China competition legislation should not subsidize Chinese products.

YES on Daines motion to prevent provisions that would undermine US energy production. A strong domestic energy industry is an indispensable element of the US successfully competing with China.

YES on Capito motion to clarify the President’s emergency declarations authority. Efforts to invoke “emergency” authorities to harm domestic energy producers would undermine the US competitive position versus China.

YES on Scott (SC) motion to prevent new greenhouse gas mandates in the US unless equaled by China. Imposing harmful measures on American firms without reciprocal Chinese actions would undermine US competition with China.

The AEA urges all members to support free markets and affordable energy by voting YES on these six motions to instruct conferees.  

Should votes on these motions occur, AEA will include them in its American Energy Scorecard.
