DENVER – Western Energy Alliance’s president, Kathleen Sgamma, will testify at a hearing entitled “Examining the Biden Administration’s Mismanagement of the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Program” before the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources. Sgamma’s testimony will focus on how the Biden Administration’s “whole-of-government approach” is creating overregulation that drives down interest on federal oil and natural gas leasing, particularly with the Bureau of Land Management’s leasing rule. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, September 19th, at 10:30 a.m. ET, and will be available on the committee’s website.
“The Administration is moving forward with a whole-of-government approach to stopping American oil and natural gas. The level of regulation coming at my industry is astounding, with practically every single agency, not just oil and natural gas regulators, getting into the action in the name of climate change,” said Sgamma. “Financial regulators, transportation, labor, every agency is attempting to prevent American production of the oil, natural gas, and coal that provides 80% of the energy to power our economy and enable the healthy, safe, and environmentally protective modern lifestyle that Americans enjoy. Government policies, as Europe is discovering, don’t make real energy appear, no matter how many billions of dollars are thrown at it. We’re all in this together, and I urge the administration to work with us, not regulate us out of existence.”
Sgamma’s full testimony is available on the Alliance’s website.
