American Energy Alliance Endorses American Energy Champion Steve Scalise for Speaker

WASHINGTON DC (10/05/2023) – On Tuesday, October 3rd, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was removed from his position as Speaker of the House in an unprecedented 216 – 210 motion to vacate.

American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement supporting House Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s (R-LA) nomination to replace McCarthy in his leadership role:

“When it comes to ensuring that consumers have access to affordable, reliable, American-made energy, there is no greater champion in Congress than Majority Leader Steve Scalise. Among his many accomplishments, he is the leader of the House Energy Action Team and has championed opposition to carbon taxes in the House of Representatives.

With a near-perfect record on our American Energy Scorecard, Majority Leader Scalise has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to advancing market-oriented energy and environmental policies that expand economic opportunity and give Americans, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to make their own energy choices.

President Biden and congressional Democrats continue to aggressively pursue policies that make energy harder to produce and more expensive. Majority Leader Scalise understands that this makes our country weaker, less secure, and less economically dynamic. He is in the best position will fight back against these disastrous policies and to advance a pro-America, pro-freedom energy agenda as Speaker.

I am proud to support his nomination and look forward to working with him and his team as the next Speaker of the House of Representatives.”
