Consumer Group Applauds Federal Action to Strengthen U.S. Energy Security

Energy Alliance
(CEA) President David Holt today released the
following statement applauding U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive
action to examine new opportunities for domestic energy production and
remove barriers to development that were imposed in recent years.

“Today’s announcement is a welcome departure from restrictive actions
taken by the prior administration, which make it harder for families and
businesses to meet basic daily needs, serve customers, and put Americans
to work.

“By considering new opportunities to develop America’s abundant offshore
energy resources, today’s action will help cement American energy
security for decades to come. This will also drive economic growth and
job opportunities in communities across the country and reduce our
dependence on energy from countries, which lack the strong safety and
environmental safeguards that we have here at home. That is why CEA
strongly supports today’s decision and looks forward to engaging
families, businesses, and communities across the United States as it is
