House Bills Safeguard Federal Land Production

WASHINGTON DC (05/02/2024) – This week, the House passed a series of bills sponsored by Natural Resources Committee and Western Caucus Members related to resource development and mining on federal lands. AEA included H.R. 6285, “Alaska’s Right to Produce Act of 2023” in its American Energy Scorecard. This legislation affirms that the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska and a portion of the Alaska Coastal Plain should – by clear and specific direction from Congress – be available for oil and gas leasing and development.

Following the passage of these bills, AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“We continue to support legislative efforts that call out the Biden administration for their wrongheaded attempts to restrict domestic energy production and raise energy prices. In particular, we commend Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources Chairman Pete Stauber for working to defend oil and gas development in Alaska, while this Department of Interior tries to illegally cancel and suspend leases. The administration’s ‘anywhere but America’ energy policies will spell job losses across The Last Frontier and higher costs for consumers in the lower 48 states. Thankfully, Congressman Stauber recognizes this and is working to protect Alaskans, Minnesotans, and all Americans.”
