THE EMPOWERMENT ALLIANCE ISSUES STATEMENT ON DEB HAALAND CONFIRMATION
Today, The Empowerment Alliance issued the following statement from its spokesperson Ian Prior following the confirmation of Deb Haaland as Secretary of Interior:
“Deb Haaland is the last person that should be overseeing energy development on federal lands. She has repeatedly called for an end to natural gas extraction, was a co-sponsor of the Green New Deal, and has admitted that she is 100% behind Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical climate agenda.
“America isn’t even 100 days into the Biden Administration and energy costs are rising and gasoline prices are expected to rise to $4 per gallon by June. Haaland’s nomination and confirmation have made it clear that the Biden Administration has abandoned a future where America’s energy resources can empower consumers for one with outages, shortages, and darker economic times for hard-working Americans just coming out of a historic pandemic.”
