Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) and Water Resources and Environment Subcommittee Ranking Member David Rouzer (R-NC) today led a coalition of 36 Republicans to call out the Biden Administration’s plan to arbitrarily discriminate against certain Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) projects related to fossil fuels.

The Members of Congress outlined critical concerns with the Biden Administration’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 Budget Request, which included “not funding work that directly subsidizes fossil fuels including work that lowers the cost of production, lowers the cost of consumption, or raises the revenues retained by producers of fossil fuels.”
