Oil Change International response to House vote on crude export ban

In response to the passage of by the U.S. House of Representatives of H.R. 702, a bill to lift the ban on U.S. crude oil exports, David Turnbull, Campaigns Director at Oil Change International, released the following statement:

“The ill-conceived crude oil exports bill may have passed today in the House, but the bigger story is the loosening grip of Big Oil on our energy policy. Repealing the decades-old ban on crude exports has been Big Oil’s top legislative priority this year, and yet this bill is dead on arrival. Even this oil soaked House of Representatives can’t muster a veto-proof majority, and it is clear they don’t yet have the votes they need in the Senate either.

Ending the crude oil export ban would be a disaster for our climate and our communities. Today’s vote should put an end to this distraction from the real job of moving away from dirty oil and towards a cleaner, safer energy future.”
