McCaul Votes to Restore American Energy Dominance

During House Republicans’ “Energy Week,", U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) voted to pass six bills to unleash American energy.

“Since his first day in office, President Biden has faithfully carried out extreme Democrats’ attacks on American energy, which he then tried to mitigate by dangerously draining our strategic petroleum reserve — a critical national security resource,” said Rep. McCaul. “American energy is the cleanest energy in the world. By attacking it, this administration is all but shoving other countries into the arms of our adversaries, who will happily sell them their cheap, dirty energy. House Republicans will keep fighting for as long as it takes to restore America’s energy dominance.”


As President Biden announced his de-facto ban on gas-powered vehicles this week, House Republicans voted on a slate of pro-energy bills to combat the administration’s radical climate agenda. Rep. McCaul voted to pass:

  • H.R. 1023, to repeal section 134 of the Clean Air Act, relating to the greenhouse gas reduction funds, to repeal the $27 billion program established in the Clean Air Act, and to strike President Biden’s natural gas tax;
  • H. Res. 987, which denounces the harmful, anti-American energy policies of the Biden administration;
  • H.R. 1121, the Protecting American Energy Production Act, to prohibit the president from declaring a moratorium on the use of hydraulic fracturing unless Congress authorizes the moratorium, and to express the sense of Congress that states should maintain regulatory authority over hydraulic fracturing on state and private land;
  • H.R. 6009, the Restoring American Energy Dominance Act, to nullify a Bureau of Land Management rule heavily restricting oil and gas production on federal lands; 
  • H.R. 7023, the Creating Confidence in Clean Water Permitting Act, to streamline permitting processes and reduce burdensome regulation under the Clean Water Act, and to ensure regulatory efficiency while increasing transparency to promote clean water; and
  • H. Con. Res. 86, which expresses Congressional disapproval of President Biden’s planned carbon tax.
