Louisiana Gov. Jindal Says Deepwater Drilling Permits Are Good First Step
Written by 

Deepwater drilling permits, finally.

Today, Governor Bobby Jindal issued the following statement regarding the first deepwater drilling permit issued since the moratorium.

Governor Jindal said, “This is a good first step, but we must quickly get to a level of issuing permits that represents a critical mass so thousands of oil and gas industry workers can get back to work fueling America again. I spoke with Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar today and we’re pleased to see that the administration recognized the oil and gas industry’s efforts to create a first-of-its-kind well containment solution.

 

“We’ve been working aggressively to push the federal government to finally issue permits. Indeed, we dispatched Department of Natural Resources Secretary Scott Angelle to Washington, D.C. and formed the Back to Work Coalition – a group of oil and gas industry trade organizations and companies – to work with BOEMRE Director Michael Bromwich in order to grind through the new regulations and help put the industry in a position to get new permits.

 

“The deepwater and shallow water drilling industries support tens of thousands of jobs in Louisiana alone and represent a critical part of our state’s economy. We’ve already watched seven deepwater rigs leave the Gulf of Mexico for other countries because of the moratorium. It’s time to reverse that trend and get the Gulf back to work.”

quin hillyer health 5Have the conservative Freedom Caucus and advocacy organizations such as Freedom Works and Heritage Action "screwed the American people"?

That's the feeling expressed by at least one long-time conservative Republican, who, as millions of others were outraged by the destruction of the Obamacare "repeal" and replacement, on Friday.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too. The health care debacle managed, if just for an hour, or two, to deflect attention away from Russia.
