The oversight hearing will explore opportunities for job creation through new and expanded energy and mineral production and also review Obama Administration regulations and policies that have locked-up America’s vast natural resources and sent American jobs overseas. At a time when the American people are clamoring for jobs, one sector that President Obama seems to consistently overlook is that of domestic energy production. Increasing permitting efficiencies, rolling back burdensome federal regulations, even opening new areas up for responsible energy development all come at little cost to the Federal government, but will have substantial impact on economic growth and job opportunities nationwide – while also decreasing our nation’s dependence on foreign energy resources. Energy and minerals are vital to our economy and increased production will be vital to getting our economy back on track.
