Many years ago, policymakers were concerned with managing a scarcity of energy resources following the energy crisis of the Carter administration.
In a remarkable turnaround, America now has a surplus of energy resources, most notably the shale gas, which has energized the industry.
We are in the middle of an American energy boom. Our future is bright if we can rein in overly-burdensome government regulations.
As a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee, my colleagues and I are working to quickly transform the scarcity mindset into a surplus approach.
