BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. JENKINS. I thank the gentleman for yielding.

Mr. Speaker, as a member of the House Energy Action Committee and a Representative from an energy State, I come to the floor today to support an all-of-the-above energy bill and an all-of-the-above jobs bill.

I know firsthand the tremendous economic growth and job creation that comes from unlocking American-made energy. My State of Kansas is undergoing an energy boom. Farmers are making money, tractor dealerships are selling new tractors, and families are paying off loans. Even church contributions have benefited.

Sadly, this American success story has been attacked by the current administration's repeated rejection of policies that would increase domestic energy production and create thousands of high-paying American jobs.

This important legislation strengthens our energy security, it removes the bureaucratic red tape hindering American energy production, and it creates American jobs.

Simply, we cannot afford to delay action that would create thousands of jobs. I urge passage of this legislation.
