The bill is a one-stop-shop for ending Biden’s attack on American Energy.
Original cosponsors so far include: Paul Gosar, Dan Newhouse, Scott Perry and Randy Weber. We are just starting an aggressive push for support now so this will grow.
Specific provisions in the bill:

• Prohibits future unilateral withdrawals of federal lands and federal waters without Congressional approval (Provision from the POWER Act); and
• Strikes Section 12(a) authority to prevent presidents from arbitrarily implementing offshore energy moratoriums for political reasons (Congress can still make withdrawals).
