Washington, D.C. (RELEASE) March 21st, 2024 — Congresswoman Harriet Hageman voted YES on two bills that will help restore American energy independence, H.R. 1121 – the Protecting American Energy Production Act, would prevent any president from unilaterally banning the practice of fracking, and H.R. 6009 – the Restoring American Energy Dominance Act, nullifies the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) proposed rule entitled “Fluid Mineral Leases and Leasing Process,” which would significantly restrict oil and gas production on federal lands.

Rep. Hageman stated, “I am proud to be an original cosponsor of the Restoring American Energy Dominance Act, and proud to vote in favor of both bills. Since his first day in office, Joe Biden has done everything possible to end oil and gas development and mineral production, which has caused massive increases in energy poverty and reliance on despots and dictators for those resources we need to power our economy.  His radical bureaucrats that are pushing rules and guidance to further his unreliable “green” solutions, and they must be stopped.  These bills are another effort by Republicans in the House of Representatives to end energy poverty and make America energy dominant once again.”
