Allred Statement on Federal Court Halting the Biden Administration’s Pause on New LNG Exports

DALLAS – Congressman Colin Allred released the following statement after news that a U.S. District Court halted the Biden Administration’s pause on new LNG exports. 

In an op-ed published in the Houston Chronicle, Allred called on the Biden Administration to end the pause on permitting new liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects to strengthen national security and power the economy.  

“Texas is an energy state and I will always work to support our energy economy in Texas, including LNG exports,” said Allred. “This court decision is a step toward protecting energy jobs, but we cannot rely on the courts to resolve this quickly. The Biden Administration must end their temporary pause on new LNG export permits and I continue to call on this Administration to do just that.”

During his time in office, Allred has supported an all-of-the-above energy approach, which includes responsible oil and gas production as well as embracing the opportunities from renewable and clean energy like solar, wind and hydrogen. In February, Allred joined his colleagues in urging the Biden Administration to prioritize policies that continue to support LNG.
