ICYMI: Tuberville in Fox News: How Congress Can Reverse Biden’s Radical Energy Agenda

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) and President of the National Oceanic Industries Association (NOIA) Erik Milito penned an op-ed in Fox News calling for congress to pass legislation to restore America’s energy independence.

Read excerpts below or the full op-ed here.

“The Biden administration has waged war on American energy. Costs have skyrocketed. Both consumers and producers are being crushed by burdensome regulations.

It is critical that Congress prioritize the passage of bipartisan legislation to unleash our nation’s offshore energy resources. 

Offshore energy development in the Gulf of Mexico is essential to our nation’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, offering immense economic, national security and environmental advantages.

From powering businesses and communities to providing lower carbon oil and gas production, offshore energy plays a pivotal role in both our economic strength and our national security.

Yet, President Biden has implemented a draconian federal offshore oil and gas leasing program that inhibits this progress. 

According to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the U.S. Department of the Interior only plans to hold three lease sales over the over the next five years in the Gulf of Mexico. This represents the lowest number of auctions in the history of the program, as there have been at least 11 lease sales in every five-year plan since 1992. […]

By leveraging our abundant offshore resources, we can strengthen our economy, reduce emissions and transition to a more secure energy future. 

Pursuing American offshore energy is not just a matter of policy, but a moral imperative to safeguard our nation and ensure we have clean air and water for future generations.

Instead of prioritizing climate activists and implementing burdensome government regulations, Biden should collaborate with Congress to make smart environmental choices while encouraging domestic energy production. 

Now is the time to advance legislation that safeguards our environment, enhances our energy security and promotes economic growth. Together, we can build a stronger, more resilient energy sector and unleash America’s offshore energy potential, now and for generations to come.”


Senator Tuberville believes Joe Biden’s overregulation of American energy is driving up prices and killing jobs. Senator Tuberville supports an all-of-the-above approach to American energy, including increasing the use of environmentally-safe and affordable nuclear energy.
