American Petroleum Institute (API) Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy Officer, Amanda Eversole, has sent a letter emphasising API’s commitment to common-sense energy policymaking to the House Energy and Commerce Chair, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and Ranking Member, Frank Pallone, ahead of a joint legislative hearing.

“API is committed to meeting the challenge of providing affordable and reliable energy while continuing to reduce emissions,” Eversole said. “The Committee’s renewed focus on restoring American energy leadership is critical to ensuring that American oil and natural gas reserves are prioritised as a long-term strategic asset that will serve as a foundation for economic growth and energy security.”

Eversole outlined several proposals expected to come before the committee during the legislative hearing that API views as a step in the right direction to passing legislation that will enable continued innovation, investment in long-term projects and cleaner energy technologies, and improved infrastructure development.

“As Congress continues its work on these and other important energy legislation, API and our members stand ready to support policies that strengthen America’s energy security and promote economic development and environmental stewardship. We look forward to continuing to work with Members of the Committee and their colleagues in the House and Senate to support legislation that will indeed, ‘pave the way to unleashing American energy sources and technologies of all kinds,’” Eversole concluded.
