AFP-SC Issues Statement in Support of South Carolina Energy Security Act, Urges Federal Action to Support Permitting Reform

Mar 21, 2024 by AFP

COLUMBIA, SC—Following the Labor, Commerce, and Industry Committee meeting, Americans for Prosperity – South Carolina (AFP-SC) is calling for the House to advance H. 5118, the South Carolina Energy Security Act. AFP-SC is also urging support for H. 5120, a continuing resolution that calls on Congress to work in good faith to reform federal permitting and environmental review processes.

AFP-SC State Director, Candace Carroll, released the following statement:

“Energy Week presents the perfect time for the State House to take action on H. 5120 which would compel federal lawmakers to pass much-needed reforms to the federal permitting process. AFP-SC is proud to support policies that will unleash American energy.

“The South Carolina Energy Security Act is a bold, transformative bill that would ensure families across the state have access to safe, reliable, and affordable electricity. We thank the Labor, Commerce, and Industry Committee for advancing this important piece of legislation and urge swift House passage of H. 5118.”


In addition to AFP-SC grassroots leadership and support at the state level, U.S. Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Chairman of the Energy, Climate, and Grid Security Subcommittee, has also voiced support for H. 5118.
