Fueling an America that Works by...Literally, Fueling America

The House has begun debate on Rep. Doc Hastings's (R., WA) Lowering Gasoline Prices to Fuel an America That Works Act of 2014. The official long title of the measure notes that it will "lower gasoline prices for the American family by increasing domestic onshore and offshore energy exploration and production, to streamline and improve onshore and offshore energy permitting and administration, and for other purposes."

There are also a number of short titles underneath this measure that are included as portions of this bill. Among them are: 

  • BLM Live Internet Auctions Act
  • Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act
  • National Petroleum Reserve Alaska Access Act
  • Planning for American Energy Act of 2014
  • Protecting Investment in Oil Shale the Next Generation of Environmental, Energy, and Resource Security Act
  • Providing Leasing Certainty for American Energy Act of 2014
  • Streamlining Permitting of American Energy Act of 2014
