WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) released the following statement after co-sponsoring U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis’ (R-WY) POWER Act.
“The expansion of oil and gas production over the last decade — and accelerated under the Trump Administration — has created hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs, decreased energy costs for everyday consumers, and made the U.S. the preeminent energy nation in the world. President Biden’s executive decision to halt the progress made in America’s energy sector is not only political pandering to satisfy radical environmental activists, it has real-world consequences and could cost more than 20,000 hardworking Alabamians their jobs. I’m proud to stand with my colleagues and fight for our citizens and America’s energy independence.”
