Gardner criticizes Moniz and DOE

Gardner criticizes Moniz and DOE

Congressman Cory Gardner responded to Department of Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz’s comments regarding criticism from the LNG industry on DOE’s export application approval process.

The U.S. Department of Energy currently has 26 applications waiting in its queue for approval and Gardner disagreed with Moniz that the criticism of DOE’s lack of urgency in approving LNG export applications is uncalled-for.

“And it’s not just industry that has voiced concerns over the current application approval process. The House of Representatives passed my bill to expedite the approval process for LNG export applications with overwhelming bipartisan support, and our allies from around the world have emphasized the importance of United

“States LNG exports time and time again. The only player that doesn’t believe that the Department of Energy needs to expedite permits to export LNG is the Department of Energy. Secretary Moniz’s belligerent tone on the issue shows just how out of touch he truly is,” concludes Gardner.
