Background:

This hearing will focus on the economic benefits onshore oil and gas development can bring to communities and how it can contribute to energy security. It will focus on the economic growth and expansion that has been made possible through onshore oil and gas development by highlighting individual stories of business owners who have benefitted from energy development by increasing profits, creating new jobs, and expanding their businesses in areas previously seeing little economic growth prior to energy development in the area. Additionally, this hearing will focus on roadblocks and rules coming from the Obama Administration aimed at preventing energy development and job creation on federal lands and the impact these hurdles will have on economic development.
