Cassidy on Shortfalls in Biden, European Commission Task Force on European Energy Independence, Offers Energy Operation Warp Speed as Solution

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) released a statement on President Biden’s creation of the United States and European Commission’s Task Force to reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian energy.  

“To secure a Russia-free energy future, we need an Operation Warp Speed for permitting LNG facilities and pipelines,” said Dr. Cassidy. “The Biden administration proposes more rhetoric and no measures to increase U.S. energy supply. As I’ve outlined, by expediting U.S. energy production and exports, we can address global security, climate, and the economy of a family and of nations. Energy Operation Warp Speed is a solution to achieve these goals.”

Earlier this month, Cassidy released a landmark energy & climate policy outline on how the U.S. can successfully reset energy and climate policy and create a global Russia-free energy future. This outline included Cassidy’s plan for an Operation Warp Speed for U.S. energy production and exports.
