NO. 1: The Biden administration has rejected a proposal from House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to tie a national security package to a temporary pause on new LNG export authorizations. 

Johnson reportedly wanted to advance aid for Ukraine and Israel in exchange for lifting the pause imposed in January by the Biden administration. The administration dismissed the idea, indicating the funding package, which has already cleared the Senate, should be passed as quickly as possible. 

The White House earlier this week stated President Biden “supports the pause” on additional approvals for pending liquefied natural gas export licenses “to evaluate the economic and climate impacts on consumers and communities.”
