Rep. Frank Wolf (VA-10) today issued the following statement in support of H.R. 1230, the Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act, which would require the Obama administration to move forward with Virginia's Lease Sale 220 and other lease sales that have been delayed or canceled:
"This legislation is significant victory for Virginia. I continue to support an all-of-the-above energy strategy that utilizes wind, solar, nuclear, coal, natural gas and other domestic sources to lower gas prices, create American jobs, generate revenue to help reduce the debt and deficit and strengthen our national security by decreasing our dependence on foreign sources of energy. This legislation is one important step towards achieving these goals by allowing us to move forward on with the offshore lease sales in Virginia in a safe and responsible way."
