Biden’s War on American Energy Is 'Having Devastating Results for Everyone,' says Cruz: Bills to Free U.S. Energy Production Introduced


"The Lease Now Act and the ONSHORE Act would immediately restart federal oil and gas leasing, while empowering states to manage their own energy development and production.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — Senator Ted Cruz, along with a key group of influential Senators in Congress, have introduced two bills to increase the production & development of the United States' vast energy resources – that have been hindered by actions of the Biden Administration.
 
“President Biden’s war on American energy production is having devastating results for everyone in Texas – from the oil and gas workers to families just trying to drive to school and work.

"The 'Lease Now Act' and the 'ONSHORE Act' would immediately restart federal oil and gas leasing, while empowering states to manage their own energy development and production,” said Cruz while introducing the legislation.

Joing Cruz to introduce the bills were:
    The first bill, the "Lease Now Act," would require the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) to resume and maintain onshore and offshore federal oil and gas lease sales. It would also direct DOI to create a new five-year Offshore Oil & Gas Leasing Plan.

The second bill, the "Opportunities for the Nation and States to Harness Onshore Resources for Energy (ONSHORE) Act," would empower states to manage the development and production of oil and gas on federal lands within their borders.

Earlier this week Sen. Cruz, along with 19 of his fellow Senators, called for President Biden’s Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo to bring additional oil and gas production online from existing offshore federal leases, saying:
 
"Its unacceptable that agency miscalculations have restricted access to safe, secure & reliable domestic oil and gas production through substantial, unnecessary, and arbitrary permitting delays."

The permits in question there are currently being delayed by the Commerce Department's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) which Raimondo oversees.
