House Republicans are likely to bring a package of energy bills to the floor for a vote next week, turning Congress’ focus back to a topic that hasn’t been predominantly on President Obama’s lips as of late.

The Domestic Energy and Jobs Act is a package of bills — all of which passed out of committee with bipartisan support — intended to spur job growth while lowering energy costs. The package is being introduced by Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.); his Strategic Energy Production Act of 2012, which would require the administration to formulate a plan for new energy leases on federal land with production output equal any oil sapped from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, is one of the seven bills included.

It was announced last week on the heels of a multi-state blitz by the GOP’s House Energy Action Team, led Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).

Here’s a video from that trip, made by McCarthy’s team, delving into the North Dakota energy boom.
