House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Energy, Climate, & Grid Security Subcommittee Chair Jeff Duncan (R-SC), and Environment, Manufacturing, & Critical Materials Subcommittee Chair Bill Johnson (R-OH) today noticed a joint legislative hearing to discuss solutions to restore American energy dominance.
“A key responsibility for Energy and Commerce is to help pave the way to unleashing American energy sources and technologies of all kinds—from hydropower, nuclear, fossil energy, hydrogen, to wind, solar, and batteries. Republicans believe that every energy technology and source has a role to play, and our solutions, which are both energy and climate solutions, reflect that. We look forward to our first legislative hearing this Congress to discuss how to lower costs, strengthen our supply chains, reduce emissions, and restore American energy dominance.”
