  Press Release: Rep. Loudermilk and House Republicans Pass Legislation to Increase American Energy Production and Protect our Petroleum Reserve  
  Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement after House Republicans passed the Strategic Production Response Act, H.R. 21:

“President Biden and his administration have been waging war on American energy production since day one of his administration by cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline, suspending new federal oil and gas leases, and pushing the Federal Reserve to implement climate change policies – all of which have contributed to skyrocketing gas prices.
