As the House continues work on the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act (H.R. 7) (see herehere, and here), we’ll be highlighting several of the bill’s pro-growth reforms over the next week.

First up: with our economy still not creating enough jobs, the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act is all about removing barriers to private-sector job growth. Instead of destroying jobs by raising taxes on families and small businesses, or resorting to more of the same failed ‘stimulus’ spending, this bill…

REMOVES BARRIERS TO ENERGY PRODUCTION TO CREATE MORE THAN A MILLION NEW PRIVATE-SECTOR JOBS & HELP ADDRESS RISING GAS PRICES BY:




  • Setting clear rules for the development of U.S. oil shale resources and promoting shale technology research and development. The Heritage Foundation says the amount of energy “available through oil shale is staggering” – “six times Saudi Arabia’s current proven oil reserves,” according to the Natural Resources CommitteeMore energy production will help address rising prices at the pump.

And as energy companies hire new workers to explore America’s vast resources, the revenue from new energy production will help pay for America’s transportation infrastructure, which is critical to our economy’s ability to function. This bill “is going to be far different than anything that we’ve seen in the past,” says Congressman Boehner.

Stay tuned to learn how the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act reforms the Highway Trust Fund, eliminates red tape that delays road projects, and more. And visit jobs.GOP.gov for a look at the Republican jobs plan and other House-passed jobs bills stuck in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
