The failure to address onerous regulations and restrictions on energy production and export not only adversely affects energy companies, it also hurts American families and businesses by driving up energy costs and driving out competition. Implementing free-market reforms would create a robust, competitive energy sector that would drive innovation and enable companies to export U.S. technologies without the crutch of a taxpayer-backed, government-run financial institution. Congress should allow the authorization of Ex–Im to expire and focus on free-market solutions to drive energy production and exports.
