BACKGROUND:

This hearing will provide an opportunity to hear from Gulf Coast residents and businesses about the economic challenges they are still facing one year after the Obama Administration lifted its official offshore moratorium in the Gulf of Mexico. The moratorium has caused hardship for Gulf families and slowed much needed American energy production. “This Administration owes the hardworking people of the Gulf Coast an effective and efficient permitting process that ensures American offshore drilling is the safest in the world while providing timely results,” said Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings.
