Washington–Today, Congressman Mike Conaway (TX-11) introduced H.Res. 243, a resolution asking Congress to support the hard working men and women who are leading the United States Energy revolution in West Texas.
“ We have witnessed the impact of their strong entrepreneurial spirit and innovative technological advances that have grown our economy, created jobs, and bolstered our national security,” said Congressman Conaway. “We depend on their exhaustive and dangerous work to power our homes, pave our roads, fuel our cars, farm our lands and everything in between that keeps this nation running.
“It is imperative that this Congress support energy policies that are as adaptive and innovative as these hard-working men and women. Our policies must cut through the bureaucratic red-tape to encourage exploration here at home, reduce job-killing regulations, and repeal the antiquated crude oil export ban of a bygone era.”
