“President Trump recognizes the importance of energy infrastructure, and that is a welcome sign. We need a president who understands the significant contributions that infrastructure makes to our economy and our national security,” Murkowski said. “I support consultation with the people affected by infrastructure projects, and we must ensure that they are built and operated responsibly. However, for too long federal agencies have been sources of unnecessary delay and uncertainty. Reform is long overdue, and the president’s actions today are a good start.”

Murkowski is chairman of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.

Energy and Natural Resources Committee

Since its creation, the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and its predecessors have considered, reported, and overseen some of the most important legislation ever enacted by the United States Congress.

This far-reaching legislative activity can be described in the following major areas: energy resources and development, including regulation, conservation, strategic petroleum reserves and appliance standards; nuclear energy; Indian affairs; public lands and their renewable resources; surface mining, Federal coal, oil, and gas, other mineral leasing; territories and insular possessions; and water resources.
