U.S. Rep. Boebert’s legislation will reinvest in new oil production and refining

Feb. 17, 2023, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in favor of legislation being offered by U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) that would increase new oil production and gasoline refineries production and construction:

“President Joe Biden urged energy companies to reinvest in new oil production and refining in his State of the Union address.  Rep. Lauren Boebert has introduced legislation which will help accomplish his newfound interest in increased domestic oil and natural gas production.  Boebert’s bill would increase federal government approvals of applications to drill and extend the time approved applications are valid from two to four years. Rep. Boebert is reaching across the partisan divide to give the President basic common sense legislation that he should be able to support in his recent quest for more oil and natural gas domestic development.  Let’s see if Joe was just blowing smoke or if he has finally come to the realization that dependency on countries that may not like us very much for oil and natural gas is dangerous both economically and for our national security.”
