Key Vote NO on H.R. 4447

  • Scorecard

The American Energy Alliance urges all members to oppose H.R. 4447 the Clean Economy Jobs and Innovation Act.  

H.R. 4447 is an unwieldy collection of bills packed full of subsidies and burdensome regulations.  The legislation as a whole has one outcome: increasing the cost of energy for Americans.  Federal government micromanaging of people's energy choices is as foolhardy as it is costly.

Even in good times, this legislation would be harmful, but with the economy still climbing out...

The American Energy Alliance urges all members to vote NO on H.R. 1957 as amended by the Senate with the text of the Great American Outdoors Act.  The federal government already owns far more land than it can adequately manage, which is part of the reason for the large maintenance backlog this bill tries to address.  However, the Land and Water Conservation Fund is simply a vehicle for buying up even more land for the federal government to mismanage.

By buying up land, the federal...

The American Energy Alliance urges all members to opposed H.R. 2 the Moving Forward Act.

This legislation is not good faith effort to advance transportation policy.  Rather the legislation seeks to hijack the required surface transportation reauthorization process to attach a slew of extraneous green provisions drawn from the unworkable Green New Deal.  This mirrors the equally shameless effort from earlier this year to hijack the coronavirus relief legislation to advance many of the...

Key Vote: Energy Bill Amendments

  • 03/04/20
  • AEA
  • Scorecard

The American Energy Alliance urges all Senators to reject harmful amendments to the introduced American Energy Innovation Act. Numerous proposed and filed amendments have no place in this legislation. Legislative action in such areas as the Kigali Amendment limiting HFCs, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, and electric vehicle and other tax credits, among others should be debated on their own merits, not attached to this larger bill in an attempt to sneak them to passage. An...

Key Vote NO on H.R. 9

The American Energy Alliance urges all Representatives to oppose H.R. 9 the Climate Action Now Act, which seeks to prevent the United States withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

The Paris Agreement was and remains a bad deal for the United States. Without Congressional approval, the previous administration sought to yoke the U.S. to economically harmful targets while allowing most of the world to do nothing. For example, the two largest sources of carbon dioxide...
