Chairman Hastings Letter to Secretary Salazar on Failure to Provide Drilling Moratorium Documents

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 25, 2012 -

Dear Mr. Secretary:

One year ago today, the Department of the Interior ("Department") was first asked to provide documents and information relating to the Obama Administration's decision imposing a drilling moratorium and its drafting of a May 2010 report entitled, "Increased Safety Measures for Energy Development on the Outer Continental Shelf" ("Drilling Moratorium Report"). For 366 days, the Department has refused to cooperatively comply with repeated requests for this information, notwithstanding President Obama's pledges of openness and transparency. Now, with its April 10 and 13 response letters, the Department is in violation of an official subpoena.
