Below are Mullin’s remarks on the Tribal Power Act:
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Today I rise in support of H.R. 5541, the Tribal Power Act.
As the only Native American that serves on Energy and Commerce and one who has lived in Indian Country my entire life, this bill is extremely important to Tribes and strategically help us receive capital we need to become energy efficient and enhance our energy infrastructure.
I have long been a supporter of the economic benefits American energy brings to our communities.
As sovereign nations, Tribes should have the ability to choose and deploy the kind of energy that best works for them.
I am proud to co-lead on this very important issue.Mullin also recognized the Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader, Greg Walden, on the House floor. Leader Walden is retiring at the end of this Congress after serving for 22 years, including the past four years as the top Republican on the Energy and Commerce Committee.
