This week, Rep. Ralph Hall (TX-04) voted in support of four bills to address the difficulties middle class families are experiencing with home heating costs. These bills offer comprehensive affordable energy solutions to meet Americans' needs.
"It has been a particularly long and cold winter this year, and American families' pocketbooks have been hit hard due to subsequently higher energy costs," said Hall. "While I can't control the weather, I can help lighten the load of costly energy bills for families by co-sponsoring and passing pro-energy legislation."
Hall continued, "This week I was pleased to join House Republicans' efforts to help lower energy costs by increasing access to "all-of-the-above' domestic energy production, expediting permits, and limiting the Environmental Protection Agency's overbearing regulations. Many of these bills were authored by the Energy and Commerce Committee, of which I am the senior member."
"During tough economic times, these pro-energy bills help American families in a very tangible way. I will continue working to help make the lives of my constituents and the American people easier."
