Top Republican moves to force Biden energy secretary to disclose meetings with CCP-tied groups

FIRST ON FOX: A top Republican congressman introduced a resolution Tuesday to require Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm to disclose her meetings with a wide variety of non-governmental organizations.

The bill, introduced by Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Mich., who chairs the House Financial Services Committee’s oversight subcommittee, would force the Department of Energy to make public Granholm’s meetings with groups tied to the Chinese Communist Party that have argued for bans on any energy type or have applied for federal funding. Huizenga introduced the resolution as an amendment to the Save Our Gas Stoves Act.

“The American People deserve to know if the Biden administration’s energy policy decisions are being influenced by entities with ties to the CCP,” Huizenga told Fox News Digital in a statement.

“My transparency amendment shines a light on the elevated access given by this White House to any groups pushing China-backed, anti-energy, America-last policies,” he added.

RMI has also collaborated with the Chinese government to study transitioning away from traditional fossil fuels, and the group’s only office outside the U.S. is located in Beijing, China’s capital city. RMI is a member of the China Clean Transportation Partnership, a green group with significant ties to the Chinese government.

The Save Our Gas Stoves Act introduced by Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., would block the Department of Energy from enacting tougher conservation standards on stoves. 

That legislation and the Gas Stove Protection and Freedom Act, which would bar federal dollars from going toward regulatory efforts to ban gas stoves, are expected to soon receive floor votes.
