Update: Congress Said YES!

I have very exciting news to share—

Earlier today, the House of Representatives came together and voted yes to lift the ban on American crude oil exports! Energy Citizens from across the country put pressure on their Representatives and encouraged them to do the right thing for America’s energy future. Your input has truly made a difference, and we wanted to thank you for all of your hard work.

As you know, this is a major victory for the future of American energy development. Now that legislation has successfully passed the House, it will move on to the Senate—bringing us one step closer to realizing all of the benefits of exporting American crude oil.

Again, thank you for speaking up and encouraging your Representative to support lifting the ban on crude oil exports. It’s Energy Citizens like you who are continually making a difference for America’s energy future. We couldn’t do it without you.

We will be sure to keep you updated as soon as we learn anything about upcoming efforts to lift the ban in the Senate.

Thank you for all of your hard work—we’ll be in touch soon!

Repeal the Renewable Fuel Standard

It’s time to take a stand against well-intentioned but poorly thought through government “standards” that damage our economy and impact every one of us.  The Renewable Fuel Standard is one such law.  Help us repeal this bill – support H.R. 703.
