October 9, 2015
Press Release


WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman issued the following statement following passage of H.R. 702, a bill that would lift bans on export of U.S. crude oil:

“It's time for Congress to bring our energy policy into the 21st century and remove trade barriers that are hindering our economic growth at home while empowering regimes like Iran that fund terrorist attacks against us and our allies,” Westerman said. “H.R. 702 simply gives us the ability to sell our products in the global oil markets. This bill is an important step forward for our economy and our national security. H.R. 702 is good for America—I urge the Senate to act immediately and implore the President to stop playing partisan politics with our energy, economy and national security. H.R. 702 needs to  become the law of the land.”
