Rep. Crawford Votes to Lower Energy Costs

3/30/2023

WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-01) voted in favor of H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act. The legislation would increase domestic energy production while reforming the permitting process. Upon the passage of H.R. 1, Rep. Crawford released the following statement:

“Today, House Republicans honored their commitment to work to lower energy costs, which have been hurting Americans and contributing to inflation. H.R. 1 will help unleash America’s energy resources and end our dependence on adversarial nations, a commonsense solution. The Biden Administration’s attacks on domestic energy production gave us the highest gas prices in history, led President Biden to drain our strategic petroleum reserve, and forced him to seek oil from Venezuela’s dictator. It’s time to end the president’s Green New Deal failures and leverage our nation’s abundant energy resources, to save Americans money and to strengthen our economy and national security.”
