AXPC Statement on Passage of the Western Economic Security Today Act

Washington, DC – Today, American Exploration & Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury issued the following statement after the passage of the WEST Act (H.R. 3397):

“The House of Representatives should be commended for its bipartisan vote to halt the Biden administration’s latest action to restrict American energy production.

“The American people deserve both responsible land management and energy production, but BLM’s so-called Conservation and Landscape Health Rule is nothing more than an attempt to go around Congress to prevent reasonable mineral development, and Rep. John Curtis’ WEST Act would ensure that BLM cannot implement this damaging rule. The Senate should pass Rep. Curtis’ bill immediately and send it to the President’s desk.”
