Over 80 Groups Support Passage of Flores Amendment


WASHINGTON, D.C., May 9, 2012 -

Dear Colleague,

Over 80 groups across a spectrum of sectors including agriculture, fishing, construction, manufacturing, mining, oil and natural gas, and renewable energy, have come together to support Representative Flores' (TX-17) amendment to prohibit funding for the implementation of President Obama’s National Ocean Policy.
