Business Roundtable Statement on the Lower Energy Costs Act

March 28, 2023

Washington – Business Roundtable President & COO Kristen Silverberg today issued the following statement on H.R. 1, the Lower Energy Costs Act:

“Business Roundtable applauds House Republicans for prioritizing America’s energy security in their signature legislation. H.R. 1 would increase American energy production, reduce our reliance on energy from foreign countries, bolster the domestic critical minerals supply chain, and enable the U.S. to export more energy to our friends and allies.
“Reforming the permitting process for energy infrastructure projects is at the core of H.R. 1 and is essential to keep up with the growing demand for traditional and clean energy. Passage of H.R. 1 is an important step toward finding a bipartisan, bicameral agreement on permitting reform legislation that can be signed into law.”
