Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ken Buck voted today for the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2015. This important legislation impacts energy accessibility and production in the United States, rolling back government regulation so that America can modernize its energy infrastructure and strengthen its energy security. The bill lifts the crude oil export ban, reforms the permitting process for energy projects, and improves the approval process for energy exports.
“After many months of calling for legislation to lift the crude oil export ban, I’m thankful the House passed this bill,” Congressman Ken Buck stated. “In an increasingly volatile world, securing America’s energy infrastructure should be a top priority.”
The North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2015 will now go to the U.S. Senate for consideration.
