by BIZ Magazine

In a new 60-second video released to mark the beginning of House GOP Energy Week, Speaker Mike Johnson underscores the critical significance of American energy to both the domestic and global economy, as well as to national security. The video follows Speaker Johnson’s recent visit to the Permian Basin in Texas, where he was accompanied by Rep. August Pfluger (TX-11).

“House Republicans are determined to protect American jobs. We want to unleash American energy dominance again. We want to help our allies. We want to reduce emissions,” Speaker Johnson affirmed in the video, underlining the GOP’s commitment to bolstering the nation’s energy sector.

Acknowledging the Permian Basin’s pivotal role in the energy landscape, Speaker Johnson expressed profound admiration for the region’s hardworking individuals, from oil rig operators to research scientists, who exemplify the spirit of American ingenuity and resilience.

Rep. August Pfluger echoed Speaker Johnson’s sentiments, emphasizing the importance of the Permian Basin and its representation of American industry and community. He underscored House Republicans’ dedication to combatting the anti-energy agenda proposed by the Biden Administration and advocating for pro-energy policies that prioritize American energy dominance and job growth.

“Energy security is national security, and I think most of the American people understand that as well,” Speaker Johnson concluded, highlighting the intrinsic link between energy security and the overall well-being of the nation.
