Today, Rep. K. Michael Conaway (R-TX) made the following statement after the House voted to pass the Domestic Energy and Jobs Act, H.R. 4480.
"The Domestic Energy and Jobs Act will reverse the glacial pace of permitting and the pointless regulations designed by the administration to slow down energy production on Federal Lands.
"The oil and gas industry has been thriving on private land despite the Administration's attempts to suffocate it. This resurgence is driven by pioneering entrepreneurs and new technology and this legislation will ensure the hundreds of millions of acres of Federal Lands are included in this American energy renaissance. The Domestic Energy and Jobs Act will put Americans back to work producing affordable American energy.
