Rubio favors lifting the crude oil export ban
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, candidate for Republican presidential nomination in 2016
Florida Senator Marco Rubio, campaigning for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination at an oil and gas event in Oklahoma, voiced his stance on some energy policies yesterday.
According to an AP report, Rubio called the ban on crude-oil exports “a throwback to the 1970s, long before a domestic oil production boom that resulted from industry advances like horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.” He said lifting the ban “will strengthen our national security interests by stabilizing global energy markets and reducing the leverage of anti-American, oil-rich governments.”
Rubio said he would seek to end the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. “As president, I will immediately stop this massive regulation.”
The senator also said energy regulation should be left to individual states, according to the AP report.
