Conservatives Give Congress their Top Ten Energy Priorities for 2019
The Daily Caller cited CEI’s report, Free to Prosper: A Pro-Growth Agenda for the 116th Congress:
Free-market think tank the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) released its conservative list of demands for 2019’s policymakers on energy and environment issues Tuesday.
CEI’s list contains 10 policy goals to promote accessible and affordable energy by repealing and opposing burdensome regulations, encouraging fossil fuel energy development and cutting subsidies and other market distorting programs in the energy industry.
“Unaccountable regulatory agencies dominate how we live, work, play, build, travel, prepare food, and heal one another – and perversely drive people away from commonsense decisions,” CEI president Kent Lassman told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement. “CEI’s Agenda for the 116th Congress points the way toward a restoration of lawmaking in the Congress and a more resilient economy for all of us.”
