Strengthen U.S. Geopolitical Ties, Encourage Job Creation & Promote U.S. Economic Growth: Vote for HR 4606, Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act

Tomorrow, the House will vote on H.R. 4606, the Ensuring Small Scale LNG Certainty and Access Act. This bipartisan bill will help the U.S. realize its full economic potential regarding small-scale natural gas exports and associated technology. There is interest
for U.S. natural gas in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, although not in the quantities that the current large-scale domestic exporting facilities were built to address via conventional liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers. This legislation
will help the U.S. act on these interests through greater regulatory certainty and a reduction in administrative regulatory burdens.

CO-SPONSOR H.R.6531, THE ADVANCING U.S. CIVIL NUCLEAR COMPETITIVENESS AND JOBS ACT

The Department of Energy (DOE) plays a critical role in America’s civil nuclear industry’s engagement in international commerce through the Part 810 permitting process. With almost 200 gigawatts of new nuclear energy capacity projected to be added throughout
the world by 2050, it is incumbent on Congress to ensure the Part 810 process is both efficient, and that it continues to maintain our strong nuclear nonproliferation posture. H.R. 6531, The Advancing U.S. Civil Nuclear Competitiveness and Jobs Act will create
a more robust Part 810 process, so that our domestic suppliers can effectively compete within the international market, thereby bringing about positive geopolitical and economic benefits for the U.S.
