Staff report



GREENVILLE ─ State Representative Jim Buchy (R-Greenville) joined 134 other senior legislative leaders from 40 states and Puerto Rico calling on Congress to lift the 1970s-era ban on U.S. crude oil exports.

Allowing U.S. energy producers to access global markets is expected to save consumers money, promote America’s geopolitical strength, and create nearly one million jobs, including many in Ohio.

“Lifting these outdated trade barriers will save consumers money at the pump and create good-paying jobs right here in Ohio,” said Buchy. “We’re calling on Congress to support this important legislation and protect America’s continued growth as an energy superpower.”
