    Tags: Economy and Jobs, Education, Energy, Transportation

    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

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) announced it would acquire the Shady Point plant located near Poteau: “This is welcome news for Oklahoma’s consumers and the greater Poteau community,” said Mullin. “This outcome keeps the doors open at Shady Point, lowers utility rates for OG&E consumers, and continues the effort to reduce power plant emissions. Oklahoma and Arkansas’s consumers and workforce have much to gain. Congratulati... Read more

H.R. 6760 makes the tax cuts from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed in December 2017, permanent for individuals and small businesses. “Our country depends on small businesses and the hardworking individuals who work day-in-and-day-out to put food on the table for their families,” said Mullin. “Today, Congress makes good on its promise to make the individual and small business ...

  • Let’s Be Fair to Natural Gas Producers

    Oklahoma’s families should be able to keep their lights on at a cost they can afford. As innovation drives how we produce energy from various sources, the most important piece to remember is that the consumer should be driving the supply and demand. I have always supported an “all-the-above” approach when it comes to fuel sources, which is why it’s time to bring equity to the sale, purchase, and use of natural gas in the United States. In order to help create a level playing field for natural ga... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 6147, the Interior, Environment, Financial Services, and General Government Appropriations Act for FY 2019: “Since the day the Obama Administration implemented the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule, I have been fighting to overturn it,” said Mullin. “The WOTUS Rule allowed every creek, ditch, and stream to be treated like a ‘navigable body of water,’ giving the federal government power to unne...

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and Congressman John Larson (D-CT) introduced H.R. 5959, the Natural Gas Parity Act, to bring equity to the sale, purchase, and use of natural gas in the United States. “When it comes to fuel sources for our country’s planes, trucks, cars, and buses, I support an all-the-above approach,” said Congressman Mullin. “Under current laws and regulations, alternative fuel sources enjoy federal subsidies that cut down on production costs while clean, natural gas shoul...

    Over the last 10 months of the Trump Administration, we’ve seen more positive changes to our country’s economy than Congress accomplished in eight years of legislation under the Obama Administration. We have made great progress rolling back harmful, job-killing regulations that hinder our economic growth. One of those harmful regulations is the EPA’s so-called Clean Power Plan which would negatively impact Oklahoma’s economy, energy grid, and workforce. During the Obama Administration, there was...
