Governor Stitt, 19 Governors Announces Plan to Unleash American Energy in Letter to President Biden

Monday, June 03, 2024

Today, Governor Kevin Stitt and 19 other governors announced their plan to unleash American energy and sent a letter to President Biden to push back against his administration’s attacks on energy production. Republican governors have prioritized an “all-of-the-above” energy strategy.

The governors call on the Biden administration to:

  • End regulatory overreach that restricts domestic energy production;
  • Increase onshore and offshore lease sales for all forms of energy production;
  • Expedite approval of federal drilling permits;
  • Remove the pause on liquified natural gas exports;
  • Roll back burdensome EPA regulations and initiatives;
  • Work with Congress to enact comprehensive permitting reform;
  • Repeal unnecessary financial regulations;
  • Expand critical mineral mining and production;

The letter reads, in part, “As governors, we are extremely concerned with the impacts your energy policies are having on households across our country and call on you to pursue an all-of-the-above energy approach that will promote homegrown energy that benefits all Americans. Under your administration, Americans have paid over 40% more for gas every time they fill up. These policies are disproportionally impacting low-income Americans.”

Signatories include: Governor Mike Dunleavy (AK), Governor Sarah Sanders (AR), Governor Ron DeSantis (FL), Governor Brian Kemp (GA), Governor Brad Little (ID), Governor Eric Holcomb (IN), Governor Jeff Landry (LA), Governor Tate Reeves (MS), Governor Mike Parson (MO), Governor Greg Gianforte (MT), Governor Joe Lombardo (NV), Governor Chris Sununu (NH), Governor Doug Burgum (ND), Governor Kevin Stitt (OK), Governor Kristi Noem (SD), Governor Greg Abbott (TX), Governor Spencer Cox (UT), Governor Glenn Youngkin (VA), Governor Jim Justice (WV), and Governor Mark Gordon (WY).

The letter can be read in full here.
