Washington D.C. – Congressman John Fleming, M.D. released the following statement this week after Interior Secretary Salazar and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) Director Michael Bromwich announced plans to make renewable energy development easier on the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf – making no mention of eliminating the numerous roadblocks put in place by the Obama administration that stand in the way of expanding our offshore oil exploration and development.
"It’s nice that the Obama administration is making it easier to expand offshore renewable energy development while deliberately ignoring offshore drilling permits. This administration puts in place a 'slowatorium' when it comes to issuing more offshore drilling permits but when it comes to offshore wind and solar development the Obama administration STREAMLINES the process. This is unacceptable." Said Congressman Fleming.
Congressman Fleming added, "I support an 'all of the above' approach to energy policy which includes expanding and developing offshore oil energy resources. The Obama administration's contempt for fossil fuel exploration is driven by a liberal ideology rather than the facts. The United States has the largest energy reserves in the world. With gas prices hovering at $4.00 per gallon and unemployment at 9%, let's develop these resources and stop the Obama administration's destructive energy policy."
Dr. John Fleming is Chairman of the Natural Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans and Insular Affairs and is a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He is a physician and small business owner and represents the 4th Congressional District of Louisiana.
