President Biden’s Green New Deal policies continue to wreak havoc on American families, businesses and communities. Gas prices are up 50% since President Biden took office, driving inflation through the roof as high transportation costs result in higher prices for nearly every good and service. To make matters worse, amid increasing global instability, our Strategic Petroleum Reserve is at its lowest level in more than 40 years. Instead of acknowledging his anti-domestic energy agenda was failing the American people, President Biden released more than 40% of the reserves to temporarily lower gas prices at times that were politically convenient.
Members of the Senate Western Caucus have led the fight to oppose President Biden’s failed energy agenda and are working to unleash domestic energy production.
Western Caucus Chair Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) introduced a resolution alongside 11 Republican colleagues to designate October 4, 2023, as National Energy Appreciation Day to celebrate the men and women who work to power the United States. While the radical left is hell bent on vilifying American energy workers, the Senate Western Caucus is committed to honoring their invaluable contributions to our daily lives that are so often taken for granted.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and 15 colleagues sent a letter to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to request they withdraw the proposed rules for designation of ‘critical habitat’ for the Rice’s Whale. The Biden administration’s latest abuse of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) would shut down offshore energy development in 28,000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico under the auspice of protecting the Rice’s Whale without evidence the whale even lives in the area.
While the Biden administration is certain to keep pursuing their radical Green New Deal agenda, the Senate Western Caucus remains steadfast in our commitment to fight for energy producers and workers.
