Bishop Statement on Trump Administration’s Draft Proposed National OCS Oil and Gas Leasing Program


WASHINGTON, D.C., January 4, 2018 -

Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement on the Department of the Interior’s Draft Proposed National Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Oil and Gas Leasing Program:

“The previous administration’s approach to offshore development started from the premise of considering ‘as little as possible.’ The Trump administration starts from the premise of considering ‘as much as possible.’ American energy dominance will only be achieved by taking the latter approach. I look forward to continuing to work with the Administration to responsibly develop American energy, spur job growth and maximize revenues to the benefit of taxpayers.”
