The House at Work: Several Committees Help Craft Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Bill

Congressman John Boehner
February 8, 2012


In the Pledge to America, Republicans promised to craft legislation out in the open in committees not behind closed doors in the Speaker’s office with input from both parties. The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act(H.R. 7), which removes barriers to energy production to help create more than a million new jobs, is the latest example of the Pledge in action.

For example, portions of H.R. 7 have been considered in five different House committees. Republicans and Democrats have had the opportunity to offer, debate, accept and reject amendments. The hearings were streamed live online and the bill will be posted on docs.House.gov in a searchable format for several days before a final vote — above and beyond the new three day requirement.

As Speaker Boehner said in his address to the opening session of the 112th Congress, the House works best when it is allowed to work its will. Heres the House at work on the American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act:

In short, this is a different kind of jobs bill that has been crafted far differently than bills in the previous Democratic-controlled House. The failed stimulus spending bill was made public just hours before it was rushed to a vote; H.R. 7 will be available online in a machine-readable format for several days. ObamaCare was written by Democratic leaders who refused to broadcast negotiations and forbid Republican amendments; H.R. 7 has been written and debated out in the open with input from both parties.

Learn more about this bill on Speaker.gov/Energy and check out the Republican Plan for Americas Job Creators  and the nearly 30 House-passed jobs bills delayed by Senate Democrats at jobs.GOP.gov.
