BACKGROUND:

The hearing will feature testimony from representatives of coastal states and examine state interest in a fair, equitable revenue sharing plan from offshore revenues. In Fiscal Year 2008, it is estimated that federal offshore energy production generated $18 billion in revenue. Under the Gulf of Mexico Energy Security Act of 2006 (GOMESA), Gulf coast states receive 37.5 percent of revenue from specified oil and natural gas leases off their coast. However, there is not a revenue sharing program in place for states outside of the Gulf of Mexico. The Committee may consider proposals for offshore revenue sharing legislation.
