Oversight Hearing on:

  • “Offshore Energy and Jobs:  America’s Governors Speak Out”

Witnesses and Testimony:

PANEL I

A witness list will be posted here once it has been confirmed.

Background:

The Committee will hear from coastal governors whose states are already feeling the devastating effects of the Obama Administration’s moratorium on new offshore energy production and its impact on American jobs, energy prices, and our economy. “President Obama’s offshore leasing plan keeps 85% of our energy resources under lock-and-key and misses out on the incredible opportunity to create over a million American jobs, strengthen the economy, and generate new federal revenue,” said Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings. “The House passed legislation to reverse this trend by removing government barriers that are currently blocking access to America’s energy resources. I look forward to hearing from our coastal governors who know firsthand how the Administration’s actions are negatively affecting the people, communities, and businesses in their states.”
