White House threatens veto for Republican energy package
The White House on Monday threatened a veto of a House Republicans’ energy package, known as H.R. 1, if it makes it to President Biden’s desk.
“H.R. 1 would take us backward. Therefore, if presented to the President in its current form, he would veto it,” according to a White House statement.
The package, which seeks to bolster fossil fuels, speed up infrastructure projects and repeal pieces of Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, is expected to come up for a vote in the House later this week.
