Jindal Joins Conservative Colleagues to Push for Crucial House Provisions in Energy Legislation
Congressman Bobby Jindal (LA-01) joined his colleagues from the influential Republican Study Committee in sending a letter to the House Leadership encouraging that important House provisions in offshore energy legislation should be included in the final legislation currently being negotiated between the House and the Senate.
"I am honored to join my colleagues from the Republican Study Committee in advocating that the final energy legislation incorporate significant provisions that were included in the House-passed version. The support for giving Louisiana a share of offshore energy royalties by the fiscally-conservative Republican Study Committee should send a strong signal to others in Congress of the importance of this legislation," Jindal said. "Important differences for Louisiana remain between the two bills and I will continue to push for the best deal for Louisiana, while ensuring that a compromise can be reached and passed soon. We cannot sacrifice the good, while trying to achieve the perfect. Too much is at stake for this to happen."
