Rep. Lummis Joins Others in Supporting Offshore Energy Supply

On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Offshore Energy and Jobs Act, which aims to expand offshore energy production. Representative Cynthia Lummis says in a media release the bill would create thousands of new jobs, lower energy prices here in the states and strength national security.

Lummis says President Barack Obama previously instituted a moratorium on offshore energy development and that his energy plan consists of increasing the cost of electricity and little else. The bill would require the Obama administration to implement a five-year lease plan around substantial natural gas and oil reserves off the coasts of Virginia and South Carolina.
