                      DOMESTIC ENERGY AND JOBS ACT

  (Ms. FOXX asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
  Ms. FOXX. Madam Speaker, summer is upon us. Traditionally, this is 
the season when Americans pack the family car to head out for a well-
deserved vacation. Unfortunately, this year, many will not be able to 
do this because gas prices are too high due to the failed economic and 
energy policies of this administration and lack of action from the 
  House Republicans have crafted and passed many bipartisan bills to 
address this issue, but Senate intransigence has prevented them from 
moving forward to provide relief to the people we represent. Today, 
House Republicans will offer another solution, H.R. 4480, the Domestic 
Energy and Jobs Act. This legislation promotes job creation and 
addresses the high energy costs which are burdening so many families 
and small businesses across America.
  Madam Speaker, the May jobs report and the high cost of energy demand 
immediate action. House Republicans are answering the calls from 
Americans with this act. I urge my colleagues to support this very 
important legislation.
