Gov. Stitt joins other GOP state leaders telling Biden to lift his LNG freeze


Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt was among 25 Republican Governors who wrote the White House this week asking the President to remove his freeze on permits for LNG export projects.

“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 recent attack on
Israel,” they stated in their letter.
Stitt and the other governors said the President’s 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,” added the governors.
They asked Biden to reverse the decision and lift the pause so the country can retain its global energy advantage.
In addition to Gov. Stitt, the others include:

Governor Kay Ivey (AL), Governor Mike Dunleavy (AK), Governor Sarah Sanders (AR), Governor Ron DeSantis (FL), Governor Brian Kemp (GA), Governor BradLittle (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 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).
