Republican governors’ statement to Joe Biden: Current LNG policy is punishing U.S. allies

Republican governors 2024

On Tuesday, 25 Republican governors issued a statement calling on President Joe Biden to lift his obstruction against liquified natural gas (LNG) export approvals, as it is creating uncertainty and hurting U.S. allies.

All but two of the 27 Republican governors signed the statement. None of the 23 Democrats holding the office of governor signed on.

The governors stated:

“As governors, we are very concerned by the Biden Administration’s move to pause approvals of new liquified natural gas (LNG) export projects, especially after Iran’s attack on Israel last week. The U.S. is the world’s leading exporter of LNG, and the decision to pause new approvals undermines our economic and national security, and the security of our allies.

“It creates instability and threatens future energy security throughout the world at a time when our allies need us the most. It sends a message that the U.S. is not a reliable energy partner.

“We call on the Biden Administration to reverse course and lift the pause, allowing America to retain its global energy advantage ensuring Americans and our allies abroad have access to a steady supply of affordable energy.”

The signatories include: Governor Kay Ivey (AL), Governor Mike Dunleavy (AK), Governor Sarah Sanders (AR), Governor Ron DeSantis (FL), Governor Brian Kemp (GA), Governor Brad Little (ID), Governor Eric Holcomb (IN), Governor Kim Reynolds (IA), Governor Jeff Landry (LA), Governor Tate Reeves (MS), Governor Mike Parson (MO), Governor Greg Gianforte (MT), Governor Jim Pillen (NE), Governor Chris Sununu (NH), Governor Doug Burgum (ND), Governor Kevin Stitt (OK), Governor Mike DeWine (OH), Governor Henry McMaster (SC), Governor Kristi Noem (SD), Governor Bill Lee (TN), Governor Greg Abbott (TX), Governor Spencer Cox (UT), Governor Glenn Youngkin (VA), Governor Jim Justice (WV), and Governor Mark Gordon (WY).

Republican Governors Joe Lombardo (NV) and Phil Scott (VT) did not sign the statement.

  1. Grandpa Bloodstains doesn’t care.

    Instead of grandstanding letters, get their collective backsides in gear to defeat Grandpa Bloodstains and hold the House.

    • Biden paused the LNG export this year: ‘

  2. Joey had a paper shredding party to get rid of unwanted waste paper from his office with an ice cream social afterwards rewarding his master Obama for the great idea.
    If it were a letter praising his actions to cease all LNG projects from the 23 Democrat governors He would have spent a s**t ton of money to frame it in gold and hang it on the wall of his remodeled “oral” office.
