Scalise Statement on BOEMRE Overhaul of Offshore Energy Oversight and Management


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Scalise today issued the following statement after Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEM) Director Michael Bromwich announced the roles and responsibilities of two new agencies which will carry out offshore energy management and enforcement functions.

"Louisiana's economy hangs in the balance as this Administration continues to drag its feet on the issuing of permits for safe offshore drilling, and while we must continue to focus on safety in the Gulf, all actions we have seen by this Administration are more focused on delaying safe energy exploration in America rather than actual policy designed to get Louisianans back to work," Scalise said.
