Louisiana Jindal Talked Gulf Drill Moratorium With Biden
Written by 

What did Governor Bobby Jindal discuss with Joe Biden during the  Vice President’s visit to Louisiana on June 29?

Certainly one of the issues was the gulf deep drilling moratorium that is high on the agenda of BP oil spill related issues.

Here are just  some of  the comments Jindal gave to the media during the press conference held following his visit with Biden.


“Finally, I talked to the Vice President about the drilling moratorium and the impact it’s having on our people. We want drilling to be done safely, but we’re very concerned about an arbitrary 6-month timeline and the fact that the commission studying the moratorium won’t even hold their first meeting until next month.

“As far as claims for the people impacted by the moratorium, the situation is still as clear as mud. We asked the Vice President today about claims for our workers and he spoke about the $100 million that has been set aside for oil rig workers. The President has told people to file claims with BP and BP has said they are not handling claims. We also have concerns that the $100 million in funds will not last for an entire six-month suspension.

Also, the funds will not cover everyone impacted by the moratorium because it’s not just oil rig workers, there are thousands of men and women that will be out of work who support this industry. Most importantly though, no one here wants a claims check or an unemployment check. They want to go back to work.”

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
