State Representative Robert Sprague (R-Findlay) recently supported a resolution encouraging the export of oil in the United States.

Senate Concurrent Resolution 6 urged Congress to lift the prohibition on the export of crude oil from the United States, a ban that went into effect through the Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975. As the resolution alludes, “the prohibition originally was intended to preserve domestic price ceilings by preventing domestic producers from receiving higher world oil prices and to preserve a depleting domestic reserve.”

However, since that time, the United States has become more crude oil independent, providing an opportunity for economic growth and stability, making the longstanding prohibition unnecessary.

“The prohibition helps our enemies overseas and damages our own domestic industries,” said Representative Sprague. “Our domestic industries are providing the jobs that working families count on each and every day to put food on their tables, and I am in support of Congress ending this prohibition.”
