President Joe Biden announced a national ban on Russian energy imports. House Committee on Natural Resources Ranking Member Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) issued the following statement in response: 

“Banning Russian oil and gas imports is the right thing to do. However, President Biden’s solution, turning to Venezuela and Iran for energy resources and trading one dictator for another to meet America’s energy needs is wrong. Instead, we should harness the full potential of America’s abundant natural resources to increase our energy security and support our allies abroad. We have seen the consequences when nations rely on their adversaries for energy, and we cannot afford to follow the same path. We must unleash American domestic resources and increase production of American energy now.”
