The White House warned Republican leaders in Congress they would face another veto from the President if they pass a GOP energy legislation package.
The White House claimed the President opposes the GOP package because it would lead to increased costs.
“H.R. 1 (Lower Energy Costs Act) would double the cost of energy efficiency upgrades that families need to reduce household bills and would repeal the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund that will cut energy costs and boost economic development in rural and urban communities across the country,” the White House said.
“Therefore, if presented to the president in its current form, he would veto it.”
