More on Energy
Congressman John Joyce (PA-13) is a strong supporter of Pennsylvania-produced clean energy. In Congress, he has worked to reduce regulatory burdens, boost innovation, and grow the job market.
This week, the U.S. House of Representatives spent valuable legislative time debating energy bills that would limit job growth and jeopardize Americans’ access to affordable energy. Congressman Joyce released the following statement on this week’s legislative agenda:
Congressman John Joyce (PA-13) today voted against H.R. 9, legislation that would force the United States to reduce its carbon emissions without any guarantee that competing economic countries will do the same. The measure would reinstitute the emission standards that President Obama agreed to under the Paris Agreement on climate change, a deal President Trump removed the United States from in June of 2017.
