House Oversight and Accountability Committee Republicans are heading to North Texas on Tuesday to explore the challenges affecting energy producers.

The hearing, “Drilling Down: Oversight of the Challenges and Opportunities Facing U.S. Energy Production,” comes as the Biden administration releases a barrage of rules affecting energy and natural resources issues.

The Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Energy Policy and Regulatory Affairs held a hearing last week on the Department of Energy’s liquefied natural gas export permitting pause.


On Tuesday, Chair Pat Fallon will question witnesses in Plano, parts of which are in his district. In a statement, he made clear what the hearing would focus on.
