Today U.S. Congressman Dean Heller (R-NV) voted in favor of the Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act (H.R. 1230), which would increase off shore oil production.
"Our nation needs a comprehensive energy strategy that provides for the long-term needs of our country. There is no doubt the economy and high gas prices are a great concern to many Nevadans. High energy prices impact every aspect of our lives. By allowing our nation to develop our own natural resources we can create jobs, lower fuel prices, and increase our country's energy security. Real action is needed if we are going to get gas prices under control. Press conferences and talking points will not do the job," said Heller.
