10 years ago, gasoline prices were at an all time high, America's dependence on foreign oil was growing, our energy future and security were at risk. America was running out of options. We tackled the issue head on. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and leaders in American business came together to form the Global Energy Institute.
In 2016, two very different visions for U.S. energy policy were presented - one that would limit energy production, and one that would expand it. the U.S. Chamber's Institute for 21st Century Energy launched the Energy Accountability Series to take a closer look at these proposals. Now that we've reached 100 days of the Trump Administration, we're taking a look back and asking "what if" things had turned out differently.
Good morning Congressman Pallone, Ranking Member Walden, and members of the Committee. My name is Christopher Guith and I am the Acting President of the Global Energy Institute, an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce (“the Chamber”). The mission of the Global Energy Institute is to unify policymakers, regulators, business leaders, and the American public behind a common-sense energy strategy to help keep America secure, prosperous, and clean.
