U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) recently co-introduced the Preempting Misguided Appeasement and Financing of Destabilizing Regimes Act, legislation that would prohibit the importation of Iranian and Venezuelan crude oil, petroleum, petroleum products, and liquefied natural gas into the United States.
Senator Tillis previously pushed for a ban on Russian oil imports and has called for increasing domestic energy production in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine.
“I support the Biden administration’s decision to ban Russian oil imports so we don’t inadvertently help fund Putin’s illegal invasion, but it cannot be an empty gesture to ban oil from one ruthless dictatorship and in turn replace it with oil from another ruthless dictatorship,” said Senator Tillis. “Instead of turning to countries like Iran and Venezuela, the Biden administration must reverse their failed energy policies and immediately expand production here in America.
