Rep. Scott Franklin: The Ready Room – June 14, 2022

Hello Friend,

Welcome to my e-newsletter, the Ready Room. As a retired Naval Aviator, the Ready Room is special to me because it’s where fellow aviators meet to brief and debrief missions. This is my weekly briefing to you on my mission in Congress. Please follow me on Facebook Twitter Instagram  and YouTube for regular updates on how my team and I are working to serve you in Congress.

The Biden Administration MUST End Their War on Domestic Energy 


Gas prices have doubled since President Biden took office, hurting the pocketbooks of all Americans. Instead of lowering costs by unleashing America’s domestic energy supply, the Biden administration pursues Green New Deal policies while begging The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) cartel to pump more oil. Restricting American energy production and leaning on foreign adversaries is not a viable solution to our energy crisis. The answer to America’s energy needs is to ramp up domestic oil production to lower costs and create jobs here at home.

  • Franklin Joins Colleagues Urging the Biden Administration to Solve His Energy Crisis with American Energy: Last week, I joined a group of my House colleagues calling on the Biden administration to address global energy demand with U.S. energy. Instead of asking foreign countries like Saudi Arabia to increase production, we should expand our domestic supply. Click here to read the letter.
  • Franklin Urges the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator to Address Supply Chain Shortages Before Hurricane Season: I joined a bipartisan group of Florida lawmakers to inform the FEMA Administrator of the critical supply chain shortages affecting Florida’s electric cooperatives and municipalities before the onset of the Atlantic hurricane season. A lack of proper equipment could leave Floridians without power for substantial periods of time. Click here to read the entire letter.
