Wittman Earns 100% on Scorecard for Championing American Energy

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Wittman announced his score of 100% from the American Energy Alliance on their American Energy Scorecard for the House of Representatives. According to their website, the AEA scorecard scores voting and co-sponsorship decisions on legislation affecting energy and environmental policy, educating voters on how their representatives vote and holding members accountable for those decisions.

“The challenges of the past few years have highlighted the importance of promoting accessible American-produced energy,” said Congressman Wittman. “The American energy industry creates jobs, lowers the cost of gas and electricity for hard-working families, and advances American interests on the world stage. Across the country, we have the resources and capabilities to increase production so we can return to American energy independence and provide crucial resources for our allies around the world. I am grateful to the American Energy Alliance for this recognition, and I will continue working in Washington to promote affordable and reliable energy.”

The American Energy Scorecard is guided by the following core principles:

·     Promoting affordable, abundant, and reliable energy

·     Expanding economic opportunity and prosperity, particularly for working families and those on fixed incomes

·     Giving Americans, not Washington bureaucrats, the power to make their own energy choices

·     Encouraging private sector innovation and entrepreneurship

·     Advancing market-oriented energy and environment policies

·     Reducing the role of government in energy markets

·     Eliminating the subsidies, mandates, and special interest giveaways that lead to higher energy costs
