    House Energy Action Team co-chairs Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) and Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) joined House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) to oppose three energy-related bills on the House floor this week. HEAT is committed to the development, deployment, and efficient use of all-of-the-above energy resources. Three natural resource bills on the floor this week, H.R. 205, H.R. 1941, and H.R. 1146, are misguided attempts to restrict energy development throughout federal lands and off our coasts. O...

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) offered three amendments to the spending bills the House of Representatives voted on this week, H.R. 2740 and H.R. 3055. All of the amendments, Amendment #89, Amendment #147 and Amendment #148, would prohibit funding for Obama-era, job-killing regulations. “The Obama Administration continuously used social cost of carbon models, which can easily be manipulated, in order to attempt to justify new job-killing regulations,” said Mullin, during debate on Amendmen...

    It’s no secret that Oklahoma and Texas have a rich history in oil and gas. In the early 1900s, people from all over the country rushed to the two states to drill and communities were built around the oilfields. To this day, thousands of families depend on the oil and gas industry for their livelihoods and the states rely on the economic opportunity it brings. But what you might not know is that Oklahoma and Texas are also rich in renewables. Yes, that’s right, two of the top oil and gas producin... Read more

    Tags: Economy and Jobs, Energy

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) released the following statement after he voted against H.R. 9, the Climate Action Now Act. This bill would force the United States to comply with the strict, job-killing emissions standards in the Paris Climate Accord, while doing nothing to hold the world’s largest polluters accountable. “All this bill would do is handcuff the American economy, eliminate jobs, and destroy all the progress we’ve made under President Trump,” Mullin said. “This is such a disgui...

    The radical Pelosi Democrats in Washington recently unveiled their large-scale plans to drastically transform our society, best known as the Green New Deal. It claims to want to take our country to net-zero emissions in the next ten years. What people don’t realize is that the Green New Deal is the vehicle that will drive our country straight into socialism. The author of the Green New Deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, makes several guarantees to the American people including: “A job with a f... Read more

    The so-called Green New Deal is here and its policy is the definition of socialism. In the resolution, Washington Democrats rolled out more of the same radical, socialist policies they have been pushing since day 1 of the 116th Congress. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez leads the charge on this humorously unrealistic plan that demands net-zero carbon emissions in the next 10 years. The key parts of the plan are worth laying out because they are completely far-fetched and unreasonable. The news may ... Read more

    The new Congress brought in many new members to Capitol Hill. Along with it came dozens of progressives, whose liberal ideas and leftist platforms would drive our country straight into socialism. One such idea is the Green New Deal. The Green New Deal aims to harvest 100 percent of U.S. electricity from renewable energy sources and make the U.S.’s carbon footprint neutral in the next 10 years. It would also create guaranteed federal jobs for unemployed individuals, since closing every nuclear, c... Read more
