    Tags: Energy

    U.S. Senators Chris Coons and Jerry Moran are leading a bipartisan effort to reintroduce tax code legislation aimed at leveling the playing field for renewable energy investment. The Master Limited Partnerships Parity Act would enable renewable energy investors to share in tax advantages presently available only to fossil fuel investors. Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) are taxed as partnerships but also allow numerous investors to hold a small stake similar to stock ownership. As a qualifica... Read more

  • Supporting the Keystone XL Pipeline

    Tags: Energy

    Today, I voted in favor of, and the House passed, H.R. 5682, a bill that if enacted will immediately allow TransCanada to construct the Keystone XL pipeline. I hope that the Senate will take up this important bipartisan legislation next week and that the President will immediately sign it into law. By approving Keystone XL now, we can improve our economy, bolster our national security, and reassert our standing in the world as nations can rely on us rather than depend on despotic rulers for the...

    Column by U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman This editorial that follows is about the U.S addiction to foreign oil and how it imperils our economic and national security. We must and can end that addiction through a renewed emphasis upon various forms of energy development here within North America where we have reliable partners in Canada and Mexico, our own abundant energy resources, and, if unleashed, the entrepreneurial, spirit to use energy more efficiently. Iranian-American relations collapsed when r... Read more

    Tags: Energy

    U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, seeking to unseat incumbent U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, defended hydraulic fracturing as a job creator and said bans of the practice would kill thousands of jobs “overnight” in a visit to Durango on Sunday. His “all-of-the-above energy policy” relies on fracking. “If an energy ban were to take place in this state, you would lose 120,000 jobs overnight,” he said. “Twelve billion dollars in economic activity would walk away and $1 billion in tax revenues that builds roads and sc...

    Congressman Cory Gardner has written a letter to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee expressing concern that a Dept. of Interior nominee up for a confirmation vote Thursday is anti-natural gas. That letter, obtained by FOX31 Denver Wednesday evening, is addressed to the committee chairwoman, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana — but it’s really meant to send a message to Sen. Mark Udall, the Democrat Gardner is challenging this November. Udall also sits on the committee and will vote T... Read more

    Today, U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) issued the below statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address: "Unfortunately, the State of the Union address has deteriorated into a sort of partisan pep rally, so I frankly don't put a whole lot of stock into it one way or the other. On the positive side, I appreciated the President's promise to expand resources and treatment options for returning veterans wrestling with the dark horrors of combat. Senator Udall and I...
