House Committee Considers Overturning Pause on LNG Exports

The president’s administration recently enacted the pause on liquified natural gas.

The House Energy and Commerce Committee will discuss a measure that seeks to overturn the pause on new liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports by President Biden’s administration. The House would like to resume LNG exports since the United States produces the most natural gas worldwide.

The Department of Energy’s permitting pause was recently announced by President Biden as his administration continues to move away from emissions-heavy resources, committing itself to developing cleaner energy alternatives.

According to the chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the committee will vote on this measure the week after next. If the committee approves the measure, it will go to the House floor.
