March 30, 2023, the Lower Energy Costs Act, H.R. 1., passed the House of Representatives. The legislation now heads to the Senate. 

On Tuesday, March 28, the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) held a roundtable discussion moderated by AFPI Vice Chair of the Board Larry Kudlow on the Biden Administration's war on American energy and the critical importance of embracing the solutions this vital legislation offers. 

Here are some of the major takeaways from Tuesday's event:

Majority Leader Steve Scalise on the Left's Attack on American Energy in Favor of Foreign Dependence

The radical Left denigrates American energy in favor of their Green New Deal policies, all while buying energy from foreign adversaries who fail to meet environmental standards. We need to unleash American energy and debunk the Left's anti-American energy myths.

We appreciate Majority Leader Steve Scalise and his distinguished colleagues for joining us for this necessary discussion. We commend House Republicans for bringing H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act, to the floor and facilitating its bipartisan passage.

However, more work still needs to be done to protect and revitalize American energy. AFPI's America First Agenda has the policy prescriptions that will do just that. Read our solutions HERE

The war on American energy needs to come to a swift end to protect American interests at home and abroad. AFPI will be on the front lines of this fight to ensure that our energy policies put America first.
