House Committee on Natural Resources Final Recommendations to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction Co-Chairs Hensarling and Murray


WASHINGTON, D.C., October 14, 2011 -

Dear Co-Chairs Hensarling and Murray:

The Natural Resources Committee is committed to addressing our Nation's record debt and deficit levels and doing its part to contribute to the Joint Select Committee's efforts to cut at least $1.5 trillion in federal govemment spending from Fiscal Year 2012 to Fiscal Year 2021. Our growing debt stands in the way of long-term job creation and our economic competitiveness. Real reductions in spending must occur now and they must be coupled with responsible policies to harness our natural resources in order to create jobs and increase federal revenue.
