Letters & Testimony

Testimony

My name is Heath Knakmuhs, and I am Vice President and Policy Counsel for the Global Energy Institute, an affiliate of the U.S.

Letters
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce opposes H.R. 948, the No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act (NOPEC), which would amend the Sherman Act to waive sovereign immunity defenses that might otherwise be used to defend against antitrust claims brought before the United States courts.
 
The U.S. Chamber is unalterably opposed to anti-competitive conduct in commercial markets by foreign states and their agents.
Letters
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports the nomination of Andrew Wheeler to be the Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
 
Mr. Wheeler’s substantial public service experience makes him an excellent choice to lead the EPA. He began his career at the EPA, where he worked on toxic chemical, pollution prevention and right-to-know issues, and he was awarded the EPA Bronze Medal twice for his accomplishments.

We are a broad coalition of labor unions, state public service commissioners, clean energy organizations, and energy trade associations, and we urge immediate congressional action to revitalize the federal used nuclear fuel program.
