Mullin Files Discharge Petition for Promoting Cross-Border Energy Infrastructure Act

Last night, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) filed a discharge petition for his bill, H.R. 575, the Promoting Cross-Border Energy Infrastructure Act, to force House Democrats to consider this bill that would have an immediate impact on bringing down the price of gas. This legislation, cosponsored by 51 other members of the House, would establish transparent, reliable procedures for the construction and operation of energy facilities that cross the U.S. border between Canada or Mexico, ensuring the U.S. can more efficiently continue the trade of energy products such as oil, electricity, and natural gas.

“President Biden and House Democrats have looked to everyone but our domestic producers to lower prices at the pump,” Mullin said. “As the national average for gas prices has reached $5-per-gallon for the first time ever, this is unacceptable. One of the best ways we can support our producers and alleviate this pain is through regulatory certainty. Through this, cross-border pipelines can deliver lower costs to consumers and ease the economic burden across the U.S.”

“I encourage my House colleagues to join me in this effort so we can get this bill to the House floor,” Mullin concluded. “There are many Americans who cannot wait.”

The full text of the bill can be found here.
