Senator Hassan (D-NH) Receives Zero Percent Score From American Energy Alliance

WASHINGTON DC (10/27/22) – The American Energy Alliance (AEA), the country’s premier pro-consumer, pro-taxpayer, and free-market energy organization, released it’s annual Congressional Scorecard last week.  The AEA scorecard scores voting and co-sponsorship decisions on legislation affecting energy and environmental policy, educating voters on how their senators vote and holding members accountable for those decisions.  This year’s Senate scorecard compiles 28 votes and 1 co-sponsorship decision from the full 6-year terms of the Senators up for reelection in 2022.  

Sen. Margaret Wood Hassan (D-NH) received a score of zero percent from the American Energy Alliance. 

The American Energy Scorecard is guided by the following core principles:

  • Promoting affordable, abundant, and reliable energy
  • Expanding economic opportunity and prosperity, particularly for working families and those on fixed incomes
  • Giving Americans, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to make their own energy choices
  • Encouraging private sector innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Advancing market-oriented energy and environment policies
  • Reducing the role of government in energy markets
  • Eliminating the subsidies, mandates, and special interest giveaways that lead to higher energy costs

 AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement: 

“Voters in New Hampshire have seen the effects of energy policies that put energy consumers last, leading to high energy prices and an impending fuel and gas shortage.  Sen. Hassan’s score reflects her abysmal record of supporting policies that would provide consumers access to affordable and reliable energy in New Hampshire.  

Time after time, Sen. Hassan has voted for policies that make electricity, gasoline, and home heating more expensive for New Hampshire and make America more dependent on other nations – like China and the Middle East – for our energy. 

New Hampshire currently has the eighth highest electricity prices in the country.  Instead of working to provide relief for Granite State residents from high electricity and home heating prices, Sen. Hassan has sided with proponents of the Green New Deal. That’s a bad deal for New Hampshire.”
