Serial No. 113-14: U.S. Energy Security: Enhancing Partnerships with Mexico and Canada, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, First Session, March 14, 2013   [open pdf - 2MB]

This is the March 14, 2013 hearing on "U.S. Energy Security: Enhancing Partnerships with Mexico and Canada," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Ed Royce: "U.S. energy security has become part of national security. This also has been with our partnership here in this hemisphere with Canada and with Mexico. And I appreciate the leadership here on this critical issue at a very critical time. Energy security is the lynchpin for our economic growth. Jobs are being created in the energy industry here in the United States, and companies, both American and foreign, often prefer to manufacture in the U.S. because of our consistent and well-priced electrical power supply. But I will share with you, energy prices here are about 20 percent less than they are in Asia. This is one of the few areas where we are truly competitive. Unless we are careful, we could inverse that equation. Unless we are careful, that pipeline which we are discussing today could go west to Vancouver in order to take that petroleum to Asia. That would make manufacturing in Asia even more of a challenge for our competition here in the United States because it would inverse that equation and make energy cheaper in Asia than it is in the United States." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Lee Terry, Duncan Wood, Daniel R. Simmons, Kyle Isakower, Michael A. Levi, and Matt Salmon.
