Jan. 27, 2016, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging rejection of Senate legislation, the so-called "EnergyPolicy Modernization Act":
"Americans for Limited Government urges the Senate to reject the Energy Policy Modernization of 2015. There is no excuse for the Senate to move forward with legislation that continues the practice of picking energy winners and losers, expands federal government authority and fails to turn control of federal lands back to the states. Rather than creating a Working Group on Energy Markets that will be abused by a future President intent on conducting a future war on energy, the Senate should focus on policies that strip the federal government's control over energy producers."
