Independent Women’s Voice (IWV), congratulates the House of Representatives for its “Energy Week” efforts. We applaud Majority Leader Steve Scalise and Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers for their leadership.

The Biden administration’s net-zero policies are contributing to higher energy bills and household appliance costs. This is the wrong direction. 

Instead, leaders should be working to make American energy more affordable. Six newly-introduced bills and resolutions would do just that by streamlining permitting reform for energy infrastructure projects or course correcting misguided Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rulemaking that restricts common household appliances. 

IWV led the establishment of honoring October 4th as National Energy Appreciation Day. This fall, we urge lawmakers to honor this day with a resolution and continue to fight for reliable, affordable, abundant American-made energy.

Thank you, Leader Scalise and Chairwoman McMorris Rodgers, for your support of sound energy policy.
