Video Blog: Natural Resources Committee Jobs Watch - Rep. Landry
Landry: Let us utilize our natural resources to create jobs all across America.

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 13, 2011 - House Natural Resources Committee Republicans are committed to putting Americans back to work by enacting policies that embrace America’s abundant natural resources to help create jobs and grow our economy.

Meet Freshman Committee Member Jeff Landry from Louisiana’s Third Congressional District. Rep. Landry’s constituents understand that drilling equals jobs. Since 1947, Louisiana has drilled over 50,000 wells off its coast and has created good-paying jobs. While the Obama Administration slow-walks permits in the Gulf of Mexico, the federal government is losing money and missing out on real job creation.
