WASHINGTON, April 28, 2021 – The American Petroleum Institute issued the following statement from President and CEO Mike Sommers in advance of President Biden’s first joint address to Congress this evening.
“Tonight is an opportunity for the president to build support for a bipartisan legislative agenda that supports our nation’s economic recovery and addresses the dual challenge of tackling climate change while providing access to affordable, reliable energy. Too often, the climate debate is focused more on partisan politics than on real solutions. A reasonable middle ground exists, and meaningful progress will require both sides working together to advance smart policies for a lower carbon future.
