The North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act is an update to U.S. energy policy that’s long overdue. Through passage of this bill, the House seeks to modernize America’s energy infrastructure, update and protect our nation’s electric grid to withstand 21st Century threats, and strengthen America’s status as the leading producer of oil and natural gas. H.R. 8 also seeks to improve energy efficiency, lower electric bills, and make government energy programs more efficient and accountable. I applaud this bill’s passage and look forward to its approval in the Senate.
