Congress Should Reform Antiquities Act; Rein in Executive Branch

This week, the White House announced that it was designating 87,000 acres of land in northern Maine to as a national monument, once again demonstrating the Obama administration’s anti-democratic tendencies and their disdain for the wants and wishes of state and local leaders. The new Katahdin Woods and Waters monument surrounds Baxter State Park and Mt. Katahdin in rural northern Maine, bordering the Penobscot River. These lands were gifted to the federal government by a private donor....

Congress shouldn't rubber-stamp the LWCF

  • AEA
  • Scorecard
This summer, both chambers of Congress have been working towards a conference agreement between two energy bills, H.R. 8 (the base package) and S. 2012 . The House passed its bill in late 2015, while the Senate agreed on its version this past April. The House then passed an amended version of the Senate bill, setting up the conference process that began in July. The conference committee is now tasked with passing a package addressing a broad range of energy issues, including infrastructure...

California’s Mandate Madness

Next week, Advanced Energy Economy (AEE)—a group co-founded by billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer—will host its annual event titled “Pathway to 2050.” The name of this conference is in reference to California’s renewable energy mandate that requires the state generate 50 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by the year 2050. California already has high electricity rates and rates are only going to increase. California already has high electricity rates...

Congressmen block arbitrary, unscientific regulatory schemes

  • 07/20/16
  • AEA
  • Carbon Tax
Rep. Jenkins, along with Reps. Culberson, Womack, LaHood, and Mullin, recently introduced H.R. 5668, the Transparency and Honesty in Energy Regulation Act of 2016 (THERA). This bill would stop the use of the Social Cost of Carbon (SCC) and the Social Cost of Methane (SCM) in regulatory rulemaking. As explained many times before, the SCC and SCM are too flawed to be used in the rulemaking process . The SCC is estimated using Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs). These models try to assess...

Free-Market Groups Support Bill Targeting Arbitrary Social Cost of Carbon

WASHINGTON – Today the American Energy Alliance and a coalition of free-market groups sent a letter to Rep. Evan Jenkins in support of his bill, the Transparency and Honesty in Energy Regulations Act of 2016. This legislation halts the use of the administration’s fatally flawed and arbitrary “social cost of carbon” (SCC) and the “social cost of methane” (SCM) in agency rulemaking and regulatory action. Below is an excerpt from the letter:
The SCC and SCM are products of...

The American Energy Alliance is pleased to announce its endorsement of businessman Donald J. Trump for President. AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement: "The U.S. is at a crossroads when it comes to our federal energy policy.

President Obama has rewarded his contributors with...

Key Vote: Interior Appropriations Amendments

The House will soon vote on the FY 2017 Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill. The underlying legislation is a step forward and includes several promising policy provisions. Two amendments provide significant improvements to the bill. One amendment, offered by Rep. Boustany, will further improve the bill by blocking funds from being used to implement the Administration’s proposed offshore well control rule. Another, offered by Rep. Ratcliffe , will prohibit...

Key Vote: H.R. 4768

Today, the House will vote on H.R. 4768, the Separation of Powers Restoration Act (SOPRA). This bill will reel in the power of executive agencies and marks an much needed step towards regulatory reform. The American Energy Alliance supports H.R. 4768 and urges all Representatives vote YES. In Chevron v. NRDC , the Supreme Court held that courts should defer to agencies for the interpretation of statutes unless the agency’s interpretations were unreasonable. Known as “Chevron...

AEA Issues Statement on Green Climate Fund Vote

WASHINGTON – American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement after the Senate Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to funnel $500 million to the UN’s green climate slush fund: "It's disappointing that the Senate Appropriations committee has capitulated to the Obama administration's climate agenda. The green climate slush fund is a political stunt to help politicians in developed countries feel good about themselves while their policies raise...

Congress looks to Rein in the EPA

  • 06/24/16
  • AEA
  • EPA Power Plan
One of EPA’s main tactics in their assault on affordable energy is to get utilities, Public Utility Commissions, and others to implement a regulation before the courts have time to rule on its legality. If EPA can get power plant owners and other regulators to move fast enough, EPA can achieve its goal of closing affordable and reliable power plants before the courts even rule on the regulation. This is what happened with EPA’s MATS rule and is what EPA is trying to achieve with their...
