    Today, Congressman Bridenstine voted to promote Oklahoma’s energy industry by supporting H.J.Res. 36, legislation to block the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) overreaching and duplicative methane emissions rule. The bill passed the House 221-191. In the 11th hour of the Obama administration, the BLM rushed through an unnecessary and duplicative mandate that hinders energy production in Oklahoma, increases production costs, and raises prices for consumers and businesses across the United States...

    Congressman Bridenstine: “President Obama has turned the EPA into one of the most vilified agencies in the ‘swamp’ of over-reaching government. As EPA Administrator, Scott Pruitt will bring a rational, constitutional, and federalist perspective to environmental stewardship. He knows the value of preserving our air, water, and land as well as the impact that regulations have had on jobs and people. He is an excellent choice for the Trump Administration.” Read more

    Today, I joined Senator Jim Inhofe in an amicus brief urging the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate EPA’s so-called “Clean Power Plan.” The proposed rules are a clear overreach of regulatory authority and part of the Obama Administration’s plan to shut down coal-fired power plants and continue its war on the poor and those on fixed incomes. As Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Senator Inhofe led the effort which was joined by 34 Senators and 171 House Members in... Read more

    Friday, the House of Representative will vote on HR 702, legislation lifting the ban on U.S. crude oil exports. The ban is a relic of the energy crisis of the 1970’s and is out of step with the current boom in domestic petroleum production. The crude oil from the American fracking revolution is not the optimum crude for domestic refineries. More gasoline will be produced in U.S. refineries at lower cost if we export domestically produced, light, low sulfur crude and import the crude oils our ref... Read more
