San Diego's North County Congressman Brian Bilbray (CA-50) has released the following statement after President Obama's address to the nation regarding the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
"The Gulf oil spill tragedy once again proves that we must become less dependent on fossil fuels," said Congressman Bilbray. "With new technologies such as algae fuel, we have the keys to unlock sustainable clean energy right here in San Diego. We need to work on cutting government regulations that choke the life out of our economy."
"When one in nine San Diegans are out of work, we must allow innovation to thrive and get San Diego back to work."
