Bishop Statement on Introduction of Senate Companion Onshore Energy Legislation


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 18, 2018 -

Today, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) introduced the “Opportunities for the Nation and States to Harness Onshore Resources for Energy Act” or “ONSHORE Act.”  The bill mirrors Title II of H.R. 4239, the “SECURE American Energy Act,” which passed the Committee in November 2017. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“I applaud Senator Barrasso for introducing companion legislation to spur greater development of the vast energy resources of America’s federal estate. This bill will not only strengthen the nation’s energy security, it will increase revenues to states, support critical infrastructure projects and fund essential public services. I look forward to working with the Senate to get this bicameral legislation signed into law.”
