Mullin Opposes Democrats’ Energy Package
Washington, September 24, 2020
Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House passed the Democrats’ partisan energy package. Mullin was not present for the vote due to supporting his son’s ongoing rehabilitation from a wrestling injury but would have voted “no” on the bill.
“We truly need an all-of-the-above energy strategy in order to keep the lights on at a price American families can afford. This legislation does the exact opposite,” Mullin said. “With a total price tag of more than $135 billion and heavy-handed government regulations, the Democrats’ energy package is another step towards socialism. It leaves rural communities in the dust by prioritizing cities and would jeopardize all the progress our country has made in becoming energy independent. It’s unfortunate they took a bipartisan bill to improve renewable energy storage in rural areas and packed it full of radical energy priorities that will result in unreliable, expensive energy for consumers.”H.R. 4447 was initially introduced by Mullin and passed unanimously out of the Energy and Commerce Committee earlier this month. Before bringing it to the House floor for a vote, Democratic Leadership added nearly 900 pages worth of unrelated provisions to the bill, creating a partisan energy package that will never become law.
