Markey, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Senate author of the Green New Deal, has introduced the Block all New (BAN) Oil Exports Act (S. 2527) to amend the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to reinstate the four-decade ban on the export of crude oil and natural gas produced in the United States.
