Congressman Darrell Issa today issued the following statement on H.R. 6899:
"This do-nothing energy bill is a sham and a charade. Drilling provisions have been written so that new drilling won't take place. This insincere bill does not expand nuclear power nor does it address the bureaucratic red tape which hampers citing renewable energy projects and the transmission lines that connect them to power grids. While Democrats have changed their rhetoric on energy, their actions have not changed. Speaker Pelosi continues to cynically block a vote on a true all-of-the-above energy bill that includes new drilling."
