Republicans plot path on energy, permitting package

Kelsey Brugger and Jeremy Dillon of E&E News report on the GOP’s energy and permitting package.

The C3 Take
  • Next week the House of Representatives will vote on H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act.
  • The package includes several pieces of legislation that reduce permitting delays, bolster American mining, and promote American energy production.
  • Reducing regulatory red tape and embracing an “all of the above” energy strategy is important to lowering energy costs.

“The bill, the work of three committees, would require the federal government to hold quarterly oil lease sales in Western states. It would speed up environmental permitting that GOP lawmakers complain drags on years longer than it should. The package would also allow for more hardrock mining in mineral-rich states like Minnesota and Idaho.”
