We Can Keep Our Production Levels High and Our Emissions Low
Rep. Yvette Herrell (NM-02)
Energy Innovation Agenda: Clean Energy Infrastructure
Bill: The Protecting our Wealth of Energy Resources (POWER) Act 

Follow along as Rep. Herrell introduces her bill, The Protecting our Wealth of Energy Resources Act — legislation to block President Biden’s ability to ban new energy leases on federal lands without the approval of Congress. This issue is personal for Rep. Herrell, as more than half the oil and more than two-thirds of the natural gas produced in New Mexico is on federal lands, so a moratorium on new leases will devastate her state’s economy, destroying more than 60,000 jobs by 2022. We don’t need to lose these jobs or leave our resources in the ground to reduce global emissions.
