Policy Priorities

  • U.S. energy independence
  • A secure and resilient U.S. energy sector
  • A predictable and efficient permitting process
  • A level playing field for all sources of energy to compete
  • Increased energy exports and international energy dominance
  • Realistic, fact-based, and economically viable solutions for complex environmental problems
  • Energy policies that help America’s most vulnerable and end energy poverty—ensuring that every American has access to affordable, reliable energy

American ingenuity and entrepreneurialism have transformed American energy. When our Nation thrived under America First leadership, the United States achieved a generational strategic goal and moved from a position of chronic energy dependency to true energy independence—providing abundant and affordable energy to American homes and communities and opening new vistas of American dreams and opportunities. Our American energy sector achieved something else as well: in attaining new heights of innovation and development, the United States led the world in generating opportunity, security, and environmental progress. The America First Policy Institute (AFPI) will advance policies to safeguard the freedoms and opportunities presented by our energy potential and rebuild our Nation’s energy independence while advancing clean air and clean water and helping make the greatest economy in the world work for all Americans.

Biden’s LNG pause earns another no-confidence vote from American energy industry
